St. Louis, MO, October 21, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- To streamline its financial, accounting and freight payment services, Sunset Transportation, Inc., a national third party logistics (3PL) leader, recently opened a second office near its St. Louis headquarters. The new office will house the company's Sunset Financial Services division, which processed over a half million shipments in 2014 alone.
New Office Boosts Profitability, Business Intelligence for Customers
“Our new Financial Services office will help Sunset streamline financial and freight payment services while also positioning our freight brokerage team for continued growth throughout the country,” said Mark Cammarata, chief financial officer, who received the St. Louis Business Journal’s CFO of the Year Award earlier in 2015.
“As always, we are making changes to improve the service and savings for our customers, and we appreciate the loyalty and support of our clients, employees and industry partners as we expand.”
Sunset’s financial and freight audit team partners with companies to streamline their processes, manage carrier contracts and ensure accurate transportation spend. Through its freight audit, payment and reporting system, PayLOGIK®, the Sunset Financial staff also helps customers reduce overhead, eliminate costly invoicing errors and profit from detailed reporting analytics.
Continued Growth and Expansion Despite Industry Consolidation
The new location is the latest example of the national 3PL’s continued expansion. Over the last several years—including 2015—Sunset’s growth has been fueled by a double-digit increase in sales and number of employees, even while the transportation industry experiences increased consolidation.
Sunset recently opened a new branch office in Bend, Oregon, expanded operations in Grand Haven, Michigan and is planning on expanding its reach into Nashville in 2016. The third party logistics provider was also named to the Inc. 500|5000 List of fastest-growing private companies for the fourth consecutive year.
The new St. Louis office for Sunset Financial Services is located just minutes from Sunset’s headquarters at 11325 Concord Village Avenue, St. Louis, Missouri 63123. Sunset’s team can be reached toll free at 800.849.6540. Customers are encouraged to continue using the same contact information and mailing address as prior to the expansion.
