A chunk of land on the city’s south side has been sold to a global transportation company.

Records from the Pima County Recorder’s Office show North Carolina-based Old Dominion Freight Line bought 9.4 acres of land at 3375 E. Corona Road from Business Park of the Desert LLC for $1.2 million.

The site of its future operation will be next to the new HomeGoods and FedEx facilities.
