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.”

As was the case for the second quarter, third quarter earnings results for publicly-traded less-than-truckload (LTL) carriers are again strong. Signs of solid earnings results from carriers that have posted earnings to date include tonnage increases, gains in weight per shipment and average daily shipments, higher yield, and revenue per hundredweight.

While the holiday season is known to bring good tidings and cheer to all, it may also come with another thing that is not so pleasant: higher rate freights. That was the thesis of a commentary written by Mark Montague, industry pricing analyst and chief market-watcher for DAT, a Portland, Ore.-based subsidiary of TransCore.

Earlier this week, FedEx said it is expanding its International First service for early deliveries with the addition of 31 new origin countries, which will bring the total number of origin markets for the service to 97.

Monday, December 22 is pegged as UPS's peak delivery day, as the company expects to deliver more than 34 million packages that day, adding that it expects to see six days in December top last year’s peak shipment day delivery record of 31 million packages.

The time has come again for less-than-truckload (LTL) general rate increases (GRI), with various carriers recently announced their respective rate hikes in recent days.
