Old Dominion Expands Canadian Gateway with New Detroit Service Center

October 25, 2012

Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. is expanding its service into Canada with the relocation and expansion of its Detroit Service Center.

Old Dominion, which has maintained a presence in Troy for 11 years, moved into a larger facility located on a 16-acre site in Troy. The terminal is strategically located along the Interstate 75 corridor, allowing for overnight service into parts of Ontario.

The relocation is part of a $90 million to $120 million investment Old Dominion has committed to real estate purchases and expansion projects in 2012. With the relocation, Old Dominion increased its workforce at the Detroit terminal by 20%.

The Detroit terminal, which includes a new repair shop, provides direct service to a number of cities throughout the region, including Auburn Hills, Chesterfield, Ferndale, Lapeer, Oak Park, Pt. Huron, Madison Heights, Royal Oak and Warren.

The company operates a total of seven terminals in Michigan. Last month, the company relocated its Grand Rapids Service Center to a larger facility.
