Saia Inc. Monday, April 8, announced that Saia LTL Freight will open two new terminals.

One facility will open in Garland, Texas while another will open in Missoula, Montana. Saia’s second Garland terminal will be the fourth for the company in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and the 21st facility for the carrier in Texas. The new terminal in Missoula will be the first the company has opened in Montana.

The two new terminals will provide expanded service, allowing us to support customer demand in these markets.

“We’re eager to add coverage across our network,” said Executive Vice President of Operations Patrick Sugar. “These new terminals were built, or renovated, to enable us to provide our customers with enhanced service so we can meet their supply chain needs.”

Saia’s geographic expansion began in 2017 with four terminal openings in the Northeast. As of Monday, Saia opened 49 facilities, not only in the Northeast, but across its legacy markets. With each opening, a statement from the company it has seen its service offering continue to improve, a success attributable to the support of its team members.

“Beyond these two, we intend to open another 16 to 17 new terminals over the next several months, in addition to relocating several existing facilities to larger or strategically advantageous locations to reduce shipping time, improve pickup and delivery flexibility, and increase capacity in key areas,” Sugar said.
