Old Dominion Opens Pair of Container Drayage Facilities

New facilities will support growing container drayage business.

Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. opened a pair of container drayage facilities to serve the company’s growing drayage operations.

With the new facilities in Front Royal, Va., and Portland, Ore., Old Dominion now offers its direct container drayage service from 20 ports as part of its OD-Global service. The company’s National Container Drayage Division can move full container load (FCL) imports or exports and domestic rail shipments directly from any point of origin in the continental United States to and from ports and rail heads at one of its 20 container drayage ports.

“Our new drayage facilities in Front Royal and Portland will strengthen our network nationwide,” said Jerry Aaron, Old Dominion’s director of container operations. “The facilities will allow Old Dominion to expand coverage in the Mid-Atlantic and the Pacific Northwest and will also help us meet growing demand from customers who ship domestically and globally.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
