USF Holland consolidating Holland terminal operations into Grand Rapids service center

USF Holland Inc. is closing its Holland terminal and consolidating that into its Grand Rapids service center in Wyoming, the Holland-based trucking firm announced Wednesday.

The company's headquarters, 750 E. 40th St., will remain.

The consolidation of the firm's West Michigan operations to 4600 Clyde Park Ave. SW is part of a continued effort to reduce costs, according to a company statement.

Service to West Michigan will not be affected, according to the company.

Celebrating its 80th anniversary this year, USF Holland employs about 500 people in West Michigan.

"Many employees will have the opportunity to move to the Grand Rapids facility," a company spokeswoman said.

Last month, the company closed 11 terminals in Kansas, Maryland, New York, Pennsylvania and Virginia, affecting about 350 employees.
