Southeastern Freight Lines Celebrates 65 Years of Service at its Charleston and Savannah Service Centers

Published by:

Celebrating decades of experience, and many more to come.

LEXINGTON, S.C. (April 20, 2017) Southeastern Freight Lines, the leading provider of regional less-than-truckload (LTL) transportation services is celebrating 65 years of quality without question service from two of its very first service centers, Charleston, South Carolina, and Savannah, Georgia, this year.

The Charleston service center opened for business in 1952, with five dock doors and six associates. Throughout the more than six decades of service, the Charleston location has relocated on three occasions due to continued growth and expansion of service offerings in South Carolina. It is now located at 1140 Business Park Lane in Summerville, South Carolina with 63 dock doors and 80 associates.

The Savannah service center opened for business that same year in what is now the Savannah State Farmer’s Market. The location had one dock door. In the 1970’s the location moved to 1717 Old Dean Forest Road in Pooler, Georgia, where it stands today. Growing from its humble roots, the location now features 58 dock doors and employs 70 associates.

“As we celebrate these incredible milestones in Charleston and Savannah, it’s humbling to look back at the impact and growth we’ve experienced,” said Tobin Cassels, president, Southeastern Freight Lines. “Throughout these 65 years, our quality without question culture and commitment to infrastructure has allowed us to expand and deliver more shipments decade after decade. We look forward to continuing to serve our customers and celebrate more monumental milestones.”

Charleston and Savannah were vital locations as Southeastern expanded to six service centers in the 1960’s. Since then, the company has opened 89 service centers spanning 14 states, Canada and Puerto Rico and has been recognized by more than 400 quality awards received from customers and associations for high service standards and innovative trucking technologies.
