Global third-party logistics services provider OHL announced it has opened up new locations in Sparks, Nevada and Dallas and is also moving its existing location in Gainesville, Georgia to a larger facility.

OHL opened up the Sparks hub in February and the Dallas hub in August, with planning for the Gainesville expansion having been ongoing for several months, according to Greg Sanders,” President of Transportation Services for OHL’s North America Transportation business unit.

“OHL has long been recognized as a leading warehouse company,” said Sanders. “During the past several years, OHL has made key acquisitions of companies and invested in people to expand our transportation service offerings both in North America and throughout the world.  I was brought in as president of Transportation Services for OHL’s North America Transportation business unit to expand our network and service offering, so that we could offer complete solutions to existing and prospective customers.”

At the Gainesville facility, OHL is essentially doubling the size of the facility and can accommodate approximately 240 people, said Karen Hall, OHL director of marketing and communication board of directors member for the Transportation Marketing and Communications Association. Hall added that the company operates its Sparks hub from the OHL multi-customer warehouse campus.  The Sparks campus is 1.3 million square feet, with the transportation operations comprising a small part of that.  And the Dallas location is OHL’s newest operation and is expanding rapidly, she said.

Sanders and Hall explained that OHL provides shippers with myriad services at these facilities, including truckload, LTL and intermodal. 

“We specialize in temperature controlled freight, dry van full TL services and can also handle special shipments including flatbed and over dimensional loads,” they said. “We operate a dedicated fleet as well as manage transportation for our customers utilizing our 12,000+ carrier partner network.”

And these facilities provide these services for shippers from multiple locations and provide full shipment visibility, too, they noted.
