JOHNS CREEK, Ga., June 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saia, Inc. (SAIA) announced today that Saia LTL Freight will open a second terminal this Monday in New York State.

"This new location is an exciting investment for us,” explained Saia Executive Vice President of Operations Paul Peck. “The facility has tremendous growth potential as we purchased the property along with seven surrounding acres. Ultimately, it is our intention to double the size of the terminal, making it a true hub in our network.”
