Saia Inc. recently announced the opening of Saia LTL Freight’s newest terminals, one in California, near Anaheim, and another in Owatonna, Minnesota.

The company said in a statement these openings mark another step in its ongoing strategy to enhance its service capabilities and support its growing customer base in these regions.

“We are thrilled to enhance and expand our network with these two terminals,” said Executive Vice President of Operations Patrick Sugar. “The terminal near Anaheim will significantly boost our service offering in Southern California, replacing our current Long Beach facility, while the Owatonna terminal will strengthen our operations in the Upper Midwest, as this is a new market for Saia. Both facilities are strategically located to improve our service and provide customers with increased shipping flexibility and reliability.”

Both terminals are integral to Saia’s strategic growth, enhancing direct shipping points, according to the company. The facility in Owatonna is important to Saia’s Western expansion plans over the next few months as it builds out its network. In addition, these new terminals will also support the local economy through improved shipping services and by creating job opportunities.

In 2024, Saia has expanded its presence with new facilities in Montana, New Jersey, Texas, and Utah, extending its reach across the Northeast, South, and Western U.S. The company plans to open up to 16 terminals by the end of the year, continuing to bolster its national network.
