Southeastern Freight Lines Opens New Service Center in Monroe, La.

Additional Capacity Enhances Service throughout Louisiana

LEXINGTON, S.C. (August 5, 2013) - Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services, announces the opening of a service center in Monroe, La. in response to growing business in the region.

The new Monroe service center, located at 309 Charleston Ave., features 4,160 square feet of office space and 13,620 square feet of dock space including 45 dock doors, will initially employ 14 associates.

As shipments continue to grow in the region, this new service center will help Southeastern streamline efficiencies for customer shipments in the Monroe area. Having previously served this market out of Shreveport, La., the new service center in Monroe will put Southeastern closer to its customers in the Monroe area.

The new service center will enhance delivery performance and reduce travel time between service centers and Southeastern customers. In addition, the new service center will boast many sustainability features, including energy-efficient LED lighting with light controlled sensors and energy-efficient ratio heating, ventilation and air conditioning with electronic control thermostats.

"With the addition of this service center in Monroe, we will be even better positioned to provide Southeastern's quality without question service to the local market," said Jacob Smith, service center manager for Southeastern in Monroe. "Southeastern Freight Lines has provided the Monroe market with "best-in-class" performance for many years. With the opening of the Monroe service center, our customers in the Monroe market will benefit even more from the added capacity with improved pickup and delivery times."

The new service center will open and begin operations on Aug. 12.
