Freight broker and third-party logistics (3PL) services provider Total Quality Logistics (TQL) said this week it has relocated its Chicago office to the West Loop area of the city.

A company spokesperson told LM that this move was made, because TQL was at capacity in its previous location and needed a bigger space for additional employees, adding that TQL had been planning to make this move since earlier in the year.

TQL first set up shop in Chicago on February 2009 and since that time has grown the office from six employees to 56. TQL has operations in 8 states and more than 1,500 employees. And it added that it would like to take on another 78 Chicago-based employees by the end of 2012.

“TQL Chicago has experienced more than 100% growth since we opened our doors in February 2009. To accommodate a larger team we have identified a larger facility to house not only our current employees, but future team members as well. The new office provides us the ability to grow our Chicago sales team over the next several years,” said Kerry Byrne, TQL Executive Vice President, in a statement.

In late September, TQL opened a new satellite office in Dayton, Ohio. Byrne told LM that since the beginning of 2009, 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.”
