Expansion Provides Quality Without Question Transportation Services throughout the Sun Belt

LEXINGTON, S.C. (Feb. 09, 2015) Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, today announced it is expanding its business across the Sun Belt region, opening four new service centers in Kentucky in response to a growing customer service need.

Strategically positioned across the state, Southeastern's new service centers in Lexington, Louisville and Bowling Green, Kentucky, as well as Cincinnati, Ohio, will provide quality transportation services with streamlined efficiencies for customer shipments throughout the Kentucky and Cincinnati areas. The new service centers will maximize delivery performance and minimize travel time between service centers and Southeastern customers.

"Expanding into Kentucky is a natural extension of Southeastern's footprint. After just recently celebrating 2014 revenue of $1 billion, the expansion comes at a natural time of growth for the company," said Mike Heaton, senior vice president of sales and marketing, Southeastern Freight Lines. "Having served in local markets across the Sun Belt with best-in-class performance for many years, we look forward to expanding the quality customer service we're known for throughout the region by meeting customers' needs in Kentucky."

The new locations are as follows:

  • 1025 Goodwin Drive in Lexington, KY, featuring 24 dock doors
  • 2220 S. 7th Street Louisville, KY, featuring 48 dock doors
