Werner Enterprises, a premier transportation and logistics provider, opened a new terminal located in Lehigh Valley, Pa.
There will be 200 trailer parking stalls and 90 tractor parking stalls in the 67,500-square-foot facility. It sits on 28 developed acres and has all the amenities drivers could need, including showers, laundry, a company store, a workout facility, a relaxing lounge area, and a full-service tractor and trailer shop and wash. This terminal location will host driver safety courses and Werner’s Career Track program for professional drivers new to Werner.
The Lehigh Valley terminal is part of Werner’s commitment to investing in its 5Ts + S strategy, focusing on trucks, trailers, talent, terminals, and technology, with sustainability as a core component of our efforts. As professional drivers work to keep our nation moving, Werner wants to provide them with a safe and comfortable place to pull over, rest and reset, as well as provide important maintenance for their truck and trailer. This facility will add 70 jobs to the Lehigh Valley area, including office and maintenance associates.
“Providing state-of-the-art facilities for our professional drivers is very important to us, and this new terminal will be one of the best in our network,” Werner CEO Derek Leathers said in a statement. “Terminal locations serve a vital role in the productivity and, most importantly, the safety of our drivers, and we will continue to invest in them to ensure they are always best-in-class.”
According to Werner, the new terminal is part of the company’s investment and sustainability strategy, which includes trucks, trailers, talent, terminals, and technology.
