JOHNS CREEK, Ga., Oct. 18, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Saia, Inc. (NASDAQ: SAIA) announced that Saia LTL Freight opened a new terminal today near New Haven, Connecticut. This is the fourth facility the carrier has opened this year, and its first terminal in the state. Part of the New York City metropolitan area and located on Long Island Sound, New Haven is positioned to supplement previous openings in the region as the company works to fill in geography in the Northeast.
