Saia Opens Newest Terminal In Maine
Saia, Inc. (NASDAQ:SAIA) announced today that Saia LTL Freight has opened its newest terminal in Scarborough, Maine, just south of Portland. This is the eighth terminal the carrier has opened since January and the first terminal the company has opened in the state.
Beyond its proximity to Boston, Portland is home to Maine's largest port and population, making it the state's economic capital. This newest location will allow Saia to offer its customers more direct coverage as demand for its shipping services continues to grow in the Northeast and beyond.
"We are very excited to be part of the Portland area," stated Vice President of Operations, East Jared Mull. "I'd like to welcome our newest employees to the Saia family. The success Saia has seen throughout the region has been because of the service our team provides our customers each day."
With each new terminal opening this year, Saia has enhanced its market position and garnered a great response from both existing and new customers. We also just recently moved into our new Salt Lake City, Utah and Colorado Springs, Colorado terminals.
"The investments we continue to make in our network are designed to provide customers with additional capacity, improved transit times, and enhanced service," Mull explained. "We are very excited about our newest terminal as we work to fill in geography, increasing Saia's presence in the Northeast."
