)-- Sunset Transportation, Inc., a national third party logistics (3PL) and freight payment provider, recently opened a branch office in Smyrna, Tennessee. Reflecting both Sunset’s growth and that of the greater Nashville area, the new office brings expanded employment opportunities, logistics and transportation support, personalized service and savings to the region.
New Sunset Office Advances Clients, Supply Chain
Sunset’s Nashville office brings a decade of logistics experience to customers under the leadership of Managing Director Jonathan Falcon. The Nashville team, which includes account managers, logistics experts and freight brokers, is equipped and ready to ship customers’ freight throughout Rutherford County, Tennessee, and neighboring states, including Alabama, Kentucky, Georgia and Mississippi.
The Nashville office’s expertise includes packaging materials & manufacturing goods, temperature control freight and flat bed/heavy haul freight. Customers receive superior logistics technology, supported by top level service, consistent cost savings and Sunset’s powerful Transportation Management System (TMS).
“We focus on cost-effective shipping and logistics solutions with transparent communication, quick resolution to issues and 24-hour service from right here in Rutherford County,” said Falcon, who has lived in Nashville since 2008. “My team is committed to savings and top notch service for our customers.”
Falcon is a Certified Transportation Broker and also holds the following Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA) certifications: Temperature Control Transport, Ethics in Transportation Brokerage and Partnership Selling in the Supply Chain. He is slated to complete an MBA in December 2016.
Nashville Branch Supports Regional Expansion
Sunset’s new branch is bringing increased commerce, employment and industry opportunities to Nashville, an area that is growing economically and as a logistics hub.
“This region of Tennessee is rapidly expanding and the metro area serves as a vital U.S. crossroads in terms of transportation and logistics,” explained Lindsey Graves, vice president of operations for Sunset. “The Nashville team is ready to support the region with needed local and national 3PL expertise as that growth continues.”
The population growth of the Nashville metro area - estimated at more than 30,000 people per year - is supporting rapid economic growth, including a booming housing market, job growth, retention of college graduates and comparably affordable living.
“My team and I are passionate about bringing positive impact to our hometown. Sunset Transportation is a great, respected organization, and it’s wonderful to be able to add jobs and philanthropic efforts to the community where we live, raise our families, attend school and work,” Falcon said.
Sunset Growth Despite Industry Consolidation
The Nashville branch marks the national 3PL provider’s sixth regional branch across the country, with two additional locations in St. Louis. Despite consolidation throughout the logistics industry, Sunset has sustained double-digit growth for over five years.
In 2016, Sunset Transportation received several honors for its growth and workplace excellence, including the “Fastest-Growing Private Company” by the St. Louis Business Journal, “Top Workplaces" by the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, and the Inc. 5000 Honor Roll as a Five-Time Fastest-Growing Companies Honoree.
Sunset’s growth is fueled by its commitment to state of the art technology, excellent service and integrity. Customers continue to choose Sunset Transportation over its 3PL competitors due to its flex-fit logistics management approach and knowledgeable teams.
