Trucking company builds terminal near Reading

By ,

Old Dominion Freight Line Inc., a trucking company based in Thomasville, N.C., is building a freight service terminal in Cumru Township at Poplar Neck Road and Route 724.

Berks County assessment records show the company bought the land from Reading Bone & Fertilizer Co. for $1.1 million.

Shannon Rossman, executive director of the Berks County Planning Commission, confirmed the company is looking to build a terminal slightly more than 38,000 square feet. The company filed the plans with the commission in September, she said.

Construction has begun, said Jeanne Johnston, township manager. The walls are up and the terminal, at 38,430 square feet, is not one of the company’s bigger facilities, she added.

Kate Redding, spokeswoman for Old Dominion, said the company could not comment on the project until it was complete. She did not know when the project would be finished and could not confirm that it would be a service terminal.

The company recently opened an 8.5-acre facility in Bethlehem Township at 2535 Broadhead Road, according to published reports.
