Saia, Inc. participated in a second auction held in late December 2023 and secured a winning bid for 11 additional sites at $7.9 million across several Western states with a concentration in Montana, South Dakota and Wyoming.

“The addition of these new facilities furthers our multiyear strategy of expanding Saia’s national terminal footprint and, as they are opened over time, they will enable us to provide better service to both new and existing customers,” said Saia President and CEO Fritz Holzgrefe. “These terminals, once opened, will allow us to provide direct coverage in new markets, add density in existing markets and serve as replacement terminals for some of our existing leased and owned facilities.”
