Southeastern Freight Lines has opened a new service center in South Houston, TX.

The 15,000 sq. ft. facility includes office space, a 9,800-sq.-ft. appointment warehouse and 125 dock doors. It is the second service center in the Houston area for the less-than-truckload carrier.

The facility boasts many sustainability features, including a solar panel field that will generate one-third of the facility’s power and a 10,000 gal. rain water harvesting system to conserve water, the company said.

“By adding this service center in South Houston, we will be even better positioned to provide Southeastern’s quality without question service to the local market,” said Garrett Elrod, service center manager for Southeastern in South Houston. “Southeastern Freight Lines has provided the Houston market with “best-in-class” performance for many years.  With the opening of the South Houston service center, our customers in the Houston market will benefit even more from the added capacity with improved pickup and delivery times.”

The South Houston Service Center will employ over 100. Operations began on Feb. 25.
