TQL Continues National Expansion with Jacksonville Sales Office
Jacksonville, Fla. – Total Quality Logistics (TQL) today opened its fourth office in the state of Florida, and 21st office nationwide. The TQL Jacksonville sales office opened with a team of 16 employees, nine of whom who were previously located at TQL offices in the Greater Cincinnati region, one recruiter, and six new hires from the Jacksonville area.
TQL is one of the fastest growing providers of transportation logistics services in North America, connecting shippers who have product that needs to be moved with truckload carriers who have the capacity to move it. The company is featured in the November issues of Inc. magazine as one of the top job creators in the country.
“Jacksonville gives us access to outstanding professional talent,” said Kerry Byrne, TQL executive vice president. “Finding the right talent is key to our ability to grow market share within the third party logistics industry.”
As announced earlier this summer by Mayor Alvin Brown and the JAXUSA Partnership, TQL will create up to 75 new jobs within the next three years at its Jacksonville sales office.
“Jacksonville is a strategic hub for transportation and logistics in Northeast Florida and the Southeastern United States,” said Mayor Alvin Brown. “I am proud that TQL has chosen to expand their business with an office in our city. This investment reflects the confidence that the private sector has in Jacksonville’s growing economy.”
TQL’s Jacksonville sales office is located at 12724 Gran Bay Parkway West. The company operates three additional Florida sales offices in Ft. Lauderdale, Orlando, and Tampa. TQL salespeople are responsible for identifying shippers who need assistance moving freight, finding quality carriers to haul that freight, negotiating rates, and satisfying shippers’ delivery needs. New hires with the company receive extensive training, while being paid a competitive full-time salary. The company offers its salespeople the opportunity to earn unlimited commissions in addition to their base salary.
