St. Louis, MO, February 26, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Sunset Transportation, Inc., a national third party logistics (3PL) and freight payment company based in St. Louis, has experienced growth in the construction, event and food sectors. Due to an improved economy, the leading 3PL firm has increased its revenue by 24 percent, opened four new branches and expanded two others.
The St. Louis Business Journal recently featured Sunset’s success story in its Feb. 5 edition and interviewed Lindsey Graves, vice president of operations. Graves explained how the economic turnaround has benefitted Sunset’s logistics services, especially in construction. Non-residential construction—especially transporting heavy loads on tight deadlines—is a natural fit for the company’s expert team and excellent carriers.
The article also discussed how Sunset’s team is excelling in event freight logistics, transporting food products and improving customer service and technology tools. “We know growth is a byproduct of excellent service to our customers. We’re grateful for customer’s loyalty and our staff’s dedication as we continue on this journey,” said Graves.
New Branches and Expanded Service
Sunset added three new branches in 2015, bringing the total to six branches across the country. The company’s presence in key transportation areas such as Chicago, Minneapolis, Nashville, St. Louis, Michigan, North Carolina, and Oregon enables Sunset (named an Inc. 5000 fastest-growing company for the fourth consecutive year) to offer expert service to local and regional clients.
Growing The Sunset Team
These new branch offices also translate into increased employment opportunities. Although the newest location—slated for 2016—hasn’t been finalized yet, Graves revealed to the St. Louis Business Journal that Sunset would be adding at least 12 new staff members this year, including account managers, brokers and operations support personnel.
“The word’s getting out that Sunset Transportation is a good company to do business with and work for, and we’re now seeing the positive results of that,” Graves added. “Our growth certainly wouldn’t be possible without our excellent managers and staff members, who voted Sunset a Top Workplace in 2015.”
