Dart Transit Company completes building expansion
Eagan, Minnesota – Dart Transit Company recently opened a new building at its Minnesota Corporate Office. The new four-level building is attached to the original building at 800 Lone Oak Road in Eagan.
Construction on the new building began last summer and doubled the size of the original to 80,000 square feet. It provides employees with more workspace and contractors with a larger lounge with kitchen and television areas, desks with Internet connection, more private restrooms with showers and a larger laundry with no charges to use.
Contractor services such as settlements, permits, and dispatching are accessible from the lounge. Tractor parking space increased by more than 50% and includes electrical power outlets. There are also plans to add a workout center for employees and contractors.
“The expansion was necessary to accommodate our growth,” says Don Oren, Chairman of Dart’s Board of Directors. “It provides employees and contractors with more space and allows them to have frequent contact with each other to develop good working relationships.”
Dart Transit Company is the nation’s 14 th largest truckload dry-van carrier, and offers 48-state, dedicated, and regional service with 2,500 independent owner operators. It offers asset-based rail service through Dart Intermodal Inc., logistics and brokerage services through Advantage Transportation Inc., and storage services through Dart Advantage Warehousing Inc. and Dart Portable Storage Inc.
