TROY, Michigan–Old Dominion Freight Line, Inc. is expanding its service into Canada with the relocation and expansion of its Detroit Service Center.

The company has moved into a larger, state-of-the-art facility located on a 16-acre site in Troy, Michigan, strategically located along the Interstate 75 corridor, allowing for overnight service into parts of Ontario. With the relocation, Old Dominion also increased its workforce at the Detroit terminal by 20 percent.

The relocation is part of a $90-120 million investment Old Dominion has committed to real estate purchases and expansion projects in 2012, said the company in a release.

“This expanded facility guarantees our customers will continue to receive the superior service they have come to expect from Old Dominion,” said John Westendorf, the terminal’s manager. “We’re excited about the growth opportunities this state-of-the-art facility affords us.”

The company operates a total of seven terminals in Michigan. Last month, the company relocated its Grand Rapids Service Center to a larger facility.
