Lexington, KY, August 11, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Total Quality Logistics (TQL) has opened its new Lexington office and job seekers are urged to learn more about this rapidly growing company. TQL anticipates hiring at least 45 new employees in Lexington by the end of 2012.
TQL is the fourth largest freight brokerage firm in the nation and it is poised to reach one billion dollars in sales this year. Freight brokers connect shippers of consumer and industrial goods, food and food-related companies with transportation carriers that bring these goods to market.
Shippers and transportation carriers rely on one another, yet don't always communicate effectively with each other. "That's where TQL provides value," says executive vice president Kerry Byrne. "Our Logistics Account Executives identify appropriate carriers for particular types of loads, negotiate rates between shippers and carriers, and monitor the safe, on-time delivery of products and raw materials."
Lexington is the fourth satellite office opened by TQL in 2011, and the eighth office opened in the last two years. TQL satellite offices have grown steadily, adding 217 new employees to the company's overall roster of 1,400. TQL's Tampa office, which opened in January of 2010 with six employees, now employes 56. TQL sees the same possibility for growth in Lexington.
"Lexington is attractive to us because of the talent in the area, which includes more than a dozen respected colleges and universities from which TQL can hire local graduates. We are excited about the opportunity and are confident in our ability to succeed in Lexington," says Byrne.
