TQL Named One Of The Best Places To Work In Kentucky
Cincinnati – Total Quality Logistics (TQL) has been selected as one of the Best Places to Work in Kentucky by the Kentucky Society for Human Resource Management and the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce.
TQL is the second largest freight brokerage in the nation, specializing in truckload transportation. They are the middleman between shippers who have freight that needs to be moved with carriers who have the capacity to move it.
TQL hopes to add up to 100 new salespeople to its Kentucky offices this year. The company is headquartered in Cincinnati, but operates three satellite locations in Erlanger, Lexington, and Louisville, Kentucky. For the past four years, the company has been pursuing an aggressive national expansion strategy.
“Our rapid expansion offers tremendous opportunities for upward mobility due to the number of leaders we need to open new offices and train new sales teams,” said Kerry Byrne, TQL executive sales vice president. “More than 90% of our current sales leadership team has been promoted from within.”
TQL salespeople are responsible for identifying shippers who need assistance moving freight, finding quality carriers to haul that freight, negotiating rates, and ensuring on-time delivery. New hires with the company must go through a rigorous logistics and sales training program before starting to hunt for new clients.
Once training is completed, the company offers its employees the opportunity to earn unlimited commissions on top of their base salary. The average compensation for a salesperson who has been selling with TQL for only two years is more than $60,000. For the top 20% of sales people in the company, that number hurdles to an average of more than $100,000.
TQL emphasizes to all those considering a job with the company that it is a challenging job in an extremely fast-paced and competitive industry. “Work ethic and tenacity are the primary components of success,” said Byrne.
