Total Quality Logistics opens up 10th satellite office

Freight broker Total Quality Logistics (TQL) recently announced it has opened a new satellite office in Dayton, Ohio.

Company officials said the company is expected to hit $1 billion in 2011 sales and explained that this new office will play a significant role in TWL’s continued growth and success. TQL added that this marks its tenth satellite office. The company arranges freight moves for thousands of North America-based customers and has a network comprised of more than 58,000 carriers.

“Dayton’s talented work force, along with the local colleges and universities provided TQL with the opportunity for expansion in the area,” said TQL Executive Vice President Kerry Byrne in an interview. “We see great potential in the city of Dayton for our organization and look forward to replicating the job growth we have experienced in Cincinnati and other markets.” 

When asked how long TQL had been planning this move to Dayton, Byrne said TQL has been aggressively expanding its operations outside of Cincinnati since the beginning of 2009, noting the company has opened 10 offices across the US with plans to add more in 2012. 

In working with more than 7,000 customers and nearly 60,000 carriers, Byrne said that the closer TQL can get to its customers, the more it can learn about their needs and provide them with more value.

“The same holds true for the carriers with whom we work,” he said. “Shippers all across the U.S. see value in the service that our logistics account executives provide, whether they are in Denver, Tampa or Dayton.”
