MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. says it is opening a new facility in Memphis.

The freight shipping company says it is opening a new 267-door service center on Monday.

The company says Memphis serves as one of its busiest freight hubs due to its proximity to Interstates 40 and 55, three major rail heads, Memphis International Airport and a busy river port.

Old Dominion says it invested more than $30 million to build the service center after four years of growth at its previous location. With 416 employees currently, Old Dominion plans to create over 100 new jobs in Memphis over the next two years.

The Memphis Service Center provides direct freight service to West Tennessee, eastern Arkansas and northern Mississippi.
