Alabama Motor Express, a family-owned trucking and logistics company with offices in Dothan and Ashford, Alabama, recently opened a new terminal in Jackson, Georgia. The new location brings AMX closer to key customers and extends its footprint in one of the nation’s largest distribution hubs, according to a statement from the company.
The terminal is located about 40 miles south of Atlanta. Its trailer pool will include about 60 tractors and even more trailers in a secure, monitored yard. The company said it seeks to fully staff the terminal with more than 50 logistics and operations professionals, as well as seasoned, certified drivers. The team will be supported by a growing parent company with logistics offices and terminals throughout Georgia and Alabama. AMX expects that with more drivers with more knowledge and insight about the region, the company can improve service levels while offering drivers more flexibility to balance work and home.
“We’re always striving for new ways to better serve our customers,” said Jared Moore, AMX vice president of traffic and l;ogistics. “The new terminal gives our customers in the greater Atlanta area faster, more responsive access to a readily available trailer pool, local drivers and strategic support.
“Regional expertise and accessibility are critical when managing capacity, rates and unforeseen challenges. We’ve been serving the greater Atlanta area for more than 30 years. Now, we have the local resources in place to connect with customers more efficiently, whether that’s accommodating last-minute deliveries, meeting for in-person strategy sessions or just catching up over lunch. We’re part of the local community, and we’re committed to helping it continue to thrive. We’ve already many established local dedicated customer accounts — and we’re ready to add more.”
AMX covers all 48 continental states and Canada with 250+ power units and 600+ trailers.
