Southeastern Freight Lines Offers Next-Day Service Between Oklahoma City and Odessa Service Centers

LEXINGTON, S.C. (June 15, 2010)
Southeastern Freight Lines, a regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services provider, is now offering next-day service between its Oklahoma City, Okla. Service Center (OKC) and its Odessa, Texas Service Center (ODS). This new capability will allow Southeastern to provide overnight service for customers who ship or receive in this lane.

"The majority of our customers in this area are in the oil industry," said Dean Baker, regional vice president of sales for Southeastern Freight Lines. "Our customers, especially those in the oil field market, have requested next-day service, and now that the economic state of the oil business is improving, we’re positioned to fulfill their needs."

One such customer is Balon Corporation, manufacturer of ball, swing check and needle valves for the oil and gas industry. Balon was the first customer of Southeastern’s OKC Service Center and has been a loyal customer since then.

"Balon has been pleased with Southeastern’s proven reliability. Our oil field equipment is time-sensitive, so next-day service is a good fit for our industry," said Larry Wedman, traffic manager for Balon Corporation. "I have an obligation to Balon and our customers to ensure products are shipped on time, and it’s comforting to know a service-oriented company like Southeastern is dedicated to making that happen."
