NORTH LIBERTY, Iowa, May 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heartland Express, Inc. (HTLD) announced on Monday, May 20, 2019, the grand opening of a brand new terminal at 9040 Bruin Blvd. Frederick, CO 80504 and completely remodeled terminal at 8566 Pecan Ave. Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91739.
Just north of the Denver metro area, this state of the art facility offers a service shop with a truck wash, fully covered 24-hour fuel island, and service lanes. The terminal features a driver lounge with 24-hour access and amenities that include restrooms with private walk-in showers and laundry room with full size washer/dryer units. Other comforts include sofas and recliner chairs, table seating, ice machine, coffee, and a large screen TV for entertainment. A sophisticated RFID software system is installed on the premises for driver security and over five acres of parking with industrial Wi-Fi network available site wide.
The opening of the Frederick terminal occurred shortly after the grand re-opening of the newly remodeled Southern California facility in Rancho Cucamonga. This 20-acre facility includes all of the amenities available in Frederick and utilizes solar power. Rancho Cucamonga is also one of 12 company locations that hosts driver orientation and soon we look forward to driver orientation at the Frederick facility.
“I’m extremely proud of these new terminals and what we can offer to our drivers. We’ve invested significant time, capital, and environmentally-conscious resources into these provisions and look forward to seeing growth of our market position in both locations respectively. These grand openings are just the start of great new things to come from Heartland. Including the completion of these two terminal projects, we are spending an estimated $40-50 million on terminal related capital projects during 2019. These terminal projects are centered around upgrades, remodels, expansions and terminal amenities for the comfort and support of our drivers, including additions of truck wash facilities at certain locations. Our desire is to offer state of the art amenities to our drivers while they are away from home,” said Heartland Express CEO, Mike Gerdin.
