OUR START

Before starting TQL in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1997, our CEO was a produce buyer, working with freight brokerage firms on a daily basis. His frustration at the lack of service and integrity he saw in the industry drove him to start his own company.

OUR FUTURE

We will continue to grow through our commitment to be the leading service provider in the industry. New customers and carriers turn to us daily to solve their transportation needs with competitive pricing, continuous communication and a commitment to do it right every time.

By delivering the highest level of professional service, reliability, and peace of mind to customers and carriers 24/7/365, we have become one of the largest and most trusted freight brokerage firms in North America, employing more than 5,500 people.

Our Mission: Exceed the customer's expectations at all times and handle their transportation requirements from the moment of pickup until delivery 24/7/365
