National less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services provider Old Dominion Freight Line (ODFL) said it has opened up a new service center in Casper, Wyoming in an effort to better serve shippers in this area.

Company officials said the new 10-door facility is located on a two-acre site in Evansville, Wyoming, east of Casper’s city center, and it will have seven employees—one terminal manager, one sales representative, and five drivers. ODFL now has 213 service centers in the lower 48 states.

“The Casper service center opened so that Old Dominion Freight Line could complete full service coverage for the state of Wyoming,” said Chuck Powell, vice president of the Pacific Northwest region for ODFL, in an interview. “Construction had been planned for about a year. The new service center will improve transit times and allow us to provide direct service to customers, making the shipping process faster and easier.”

Powell said that ODFL estimates the new service center will accommodate approximately 200 customers per week.

Prior to the establishment of this new service center, ODFL shipments in this region were directed through a service center in Cheyenne, Wyo. or were handled via interline.
