Jacksonville, FL, March 09, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Corporate Traffic, a Jacksonville-based third party logistics provider, has opened an additional office in Charlotte, N.C. to address its burgeoning business in the region. The new Charlotte office allows Corporate Traffic to better serve its existing clients in the region by developing a local presence and position the company for continued growth in the Charlotte area.
“We have seen steady growth among our clients in the North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia region, who are realizing the benefits we provide to their less-than-truckload, TL, intermodal and air shipments,” said Chris Cline, President of Corporate Traffic. “Our clients are achieving cost savings and increased efficiency in their supply chains by relying more heavily on us to manage all aspects of their logistics needs, allowing them to devote more time to their core business. Opening the Charlotte office allows us to provide even more personal service to our clients, and have a more pronounced local presence to serve new clients in the future.”
Corporate Traffic currently provides Managed-Less-than-Truckload (M-LTL), Truckload (TL), intermodal and airfreight services to its Charlotte-area clients. Corporate Traffic will continue to provide those services from its new Charlotte office while also building its own asset-based trucking fleet in the Charlotte market. With Charlotte being an epicenter of logistics activity in the region, Corporate Traffic’s new office will have a closer proximity to Charlotte’s rail centers as well as the Charlotte Douglas International Airport. Corporate Traffic anticipates utilization of LTL, intermodal and expedited airfreight services to grow significantly during the next five years, and is preparing for this market growth by establishing a permanent presence in Charlotte.
“Charlotte is a growing market in the logistics industry,” said Cline. “Specifically with the airport and its pending interior rail-freight terminal, Charlotte is on the cusp of becoming a heavy player in ground and air transportation. We are prepared to capitalize on this growth and leverage Charlotte’s assets to our clients’ advantage.”
Recently certified as an Indirect Air Carrier (IAC), Corporate Traffic can register clients as “known shippers” with the Department of Homeland Security/TSA. This service saves clients time and money by allowing them to ship cargo on passenger airplanes without additional screening. Corporate Traffic’s recently introduced M-LTL division also saves time and money for clients by having Corporate Traffic manage every aspect of clients’ shipments. This includes evaluating pricing and transit-time comparisons, managing carriers, and monitoring shipments to ensure a cost-efficient and timely delivery.
