Southeastern Freight Lines opened the West Atlanta service center on October 5, 1998. Located in Austell, GA, the West Atlanta (WAT) service center is strategically positioned to provide world class service to customers in West Georgia and East Alabama. West Atlanta is home to over 380 associates that are committed to achieving our vision of being “The Best and the Biggest in the Sunbelt Region.”
West Atlanta is best known for its reputation of providing best in the business transit times by consistently producing transit times over 99% throughout its 17 years of service. The people of West Atlanta are truly committed to providing Quality without Question!
What began as a 124 door service center has recently been expanded and renovated to a state-of-the-art 181 door facility, and there’s still room for future expansion. On any given day, there are over 4,600 shipments that move through the West Atlanta service center. With an average of over 700 shipments delivered and over 2,200 shipments picked up each day, this is one of Southeastern Freight Lines’ largest service centers.
This service center is also a gateway to and from our service centers in the Western part of our direct service territory. Each day, an average of over 1,800 break-bulk shipments move through the service center. This operation allows for direct loading and minimal shipment handling between shippers and our service centers in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Northern Louisiana.
The outstanding service provided by West Atlanta could not be accomplished without a Quality Fleet Services Operation.
West Atlanta is also home to a fully operational Fleet Services center. With 12 tractor bays, 6 trailers bays, a fully operational tire & lube bay, and its own parts department, the Fleet Services center here is equipped to service any piece of equipment operated by Southeastern Freight Lines. This state-of-the-art fleet services location is operated by 44 fully trained technicians working around the clock, to keep the customers’ freight moving each and every day.
Even with all the resources and infrastructure that make West Atlanta and Southeastern Freight Lines great, the most important aspect of West Atlanta is the people and the culture. The 380 associates at this service center are committed to serving and delighting customers with superior service day in and day out. This is what our customers have grown to love and expect from the team here, as well as any Southeastern Freight Lines’ service center.
