Roadrunner announced that it opened a new less-than-truckload service center in Atlanta. 

The two-building, cross-docking facility has 75 doors, a complete on-site mechanical shop with three full bays and an inspection lane, parking for more than 300 trailers, new electric security fencing and gate access, and renovated offices. Roadrunner also equipped its newest facility with showers and a lounge area for its drivers. The terminal formerly belonged to Yello Corp. and has gone through extensive renovation. 

“Our new Atlanta service center is a true cross-docking facility, enabling us to improve the efficiency of our operations throughout our expansive network, and increase both the output and throughput of the Atlanta market,” said Tomasz Jamroz, Chief Operating Officer at Roadrunner. “It provides more doors and a larger area for us to enhance our operations, using our Smart Technology. Atlanta plays a key role in our operations and aligns with our goal of providing smart long-haul LTL with the fewest number of rehandlings possible.”

This facility is the first to feature one of Roadrunner’s Flagship Driver Lounges, which the company said will be similar to airport lounges, but offer amenities exclusively for linehaul independent contractor drivers. Roadrunner will be opening lounges in Commerce, California and Dallas later this year.

“The size and layout of the service center combined with its proximity to major highways allows us to offer our customers even better service,” said James Darendinger, Atlanta Service Center manager. “Our Atlanta service center connects to every other region in the U.S., so it is an important piece in our Smart Network.”
