Less-than-truckload provider Southeastern Freight Lines has opened a new service facility in Florida.
The Jacksonville center features 125 dock doors, 22,000 sq. ft. of office space and over 19,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space. SEFL said that 10 doors have been dedicated to serving international customers in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands.
The service center replaces a previous facility and provides capacity to accommodate future growth. It includes an appointment warehouse, maintenance shop with eight truck bays, 16 line-haul bunkrooms for road drivers, and an integrated air system, allowing the easy filling of air bags that block and brace shipments to prevent freight from shifting during transit.
“With the addition of this service center in Jacksonville, we will be even better positioned to provide Southeastern’s quality without question service to the local market,” said Marty Coffey, service center manager for Southeastern in Jacksonville. “Southeastern Freight Lines has provided the Jacksonville market with ‘best-in-class’ performance for many years. With the opening of the new Jacksonville service center, our customers in the market will benefit even more from the added capacity with improved pickup and delivery times.”
The Jacksonville service center employs 158.
