Total Quality Logistics (TQL), the nation's second-largest freight brokerage firm, is adding 50 new positions to its Tampa team. Since the company launched the Tampa satellite location in 2010, it has grown from a core team of 7 to more than 100 employees.
Founded in 1997, TQL
specializes in truckload transportation, connecting consumer product and industrial goods shippers with truck operators to transport freight to destinations across America.
TQL is now adding logistics account executives to focus on business development and sales management while ensuring that clients receive smooth freight service from pick-up to delivery.
"We need hard-working, motivated individuals who want to put in the time and effort it takes to succeed in this industry,'' says Executive VP Kerry Byrne. Employees selling with the firm over two years acquire an average annual compensation of more than $60,000.
In 2009, the company began a national expansion initiative, adding over 1,200 jobs in just four years. "We have grown an average of 30 percent each year,'' says Byrne. TQL's growth plan includes a focus on organic growth through strategic personnel and technological investments, market penetration through valued customer service relationships, opening additional satellite locations, and creating up to 400 jobs nationwide.
"Our Tampa location allows us to attract top talent from the surrounding colleges and universities. Our projection is that our Tampa operations will nearly triple in the next three years,'' says Byrne.
TQL offers a unique training program for employees and has a keen concentration on providing a corporate culture inclusive of challenging and celebrating employees. "More than 90 percent of the company's current sales leadership team has been promoted from within,'' says Byrne.
