SEFL to Launch New subsidiary
Initially, the primary focus for SLS is in the truckload service areas of dry van, temperature controlled reefer, flatbed, and intermodal rail.
SLS will also oversee and manage all expedited products that require partnership capacity outside of the (SEFL)LTL network. Over time, SLS will introduce additional transportation services including cartage, drayage, air freight, residential delivery and import distribution.
Mike Moss, president of SLS, brings more than 20 years of experience in the transportation industry to lead Southeastern Freight Lines' subsidiary SLS.
Mr Moss has a broad background providing executive leadership in the industry, previously serving as president and CEO for FedEx Freight-West and FedEx National LTL.
SEFL will offer these services for customers, including third-party logistics companies. The firm's sales and service center leadership teams have received thorough training to equip them with the knowledge and expertise to serve as single-source representatives of all SEFL and SLS service offerings.
Tobin Cassels, president of Southeastern Freight Lines, said: â€œAt the same time, we recognize that a number of our customers have additional needs for a partner with the ability to provide all modes of transportation, and we want to always be positioned to say 'yes' to their transportation needs regardless of service type.â€
Mr Moss said: â€œThe full solutions we are bringing to the market align with the same service quality and culture that SEFL customers have trusted for years. We're carefully establishing a group of dependable capacity partners that will give us the ability to offer this broad range of services across the nation.â€
Will the new subsidiary provide better multi-modal transportation services?
