Becker opens ‘flagship’ Florida facility

Aug. 5, 2022
Third-party logistics company expands in the Southeast U.S. with a new, 6,300-sq.-ft. office serving customers in refrigerated, food products, and other segments.

Becker Logistics recently opened an office in Jacksonville, Florida.

The new location is the first one the Glendale Heights, Illinois-based, third-party logistics company has added since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Previously, Becker boasted 10 offices in the U.S. and Canada, but employees now split time working from home and the office, so it doesn’t need as many locations.

“This is an area that we have always wanted to be in, and we are finally here,” said Jim Becker, CEO and chairman of Becker Logistics. “The executive team has been working on this project since October 2021, and this office will be the new flagship of what our future offices look like in North America.”

Becker—which is targeting 800 customers by the end of 2022—established the 6,300-square-foot Jacksonville facility in a bid to expand its reach in the Southeast, and grow business in the refrigerated, food products, paper products, dry van and flatbed segments, the company said. Additionally, the new nine-member staff is expected to help Becker capitalize on its intermodal vertical as it continues to recruit talent.

“The Jacksonville office has over 40 years of experience in the logistics industry,” said Jesse Martinez, shared general manager in Jacksonville. “This area is a logistics community filled with talent, and we look forward to continuing to work with the community. We are poised to grow the Becker footprint in Northeast Florida as our experience with Becker Logistics has been great.
