Total Quality Logistics (TQL) has opened its new Lexington KY office, and it expects to hire at least 45 new employees there by the end of 2012.
TQL is the fourth-largest freight brokerage firm in the nation. Freight brokers connect shippers of consumer and industrial goods, food, and food-related companies with transportation carriers that bring these goods to market.
“Our logistics account executives identify appropriate carriers for particular types of loads, negotiate rates between shippers and carriers, and monitor the safe, on-time delivery of products and raw materials,” said Kerry Byrne, executive vice-president.
Lexington is the fourth satellite office opened by TQL in 2011, and the eighth opened in the past two years. Satellite offices have grown steadily, adding 217 new employees to the company’s overall roster of 1,400. TQL’s Tampa FL office, which opened in January 2010 with six employees, now employs 56.
“Lexington is attractive to us because of the talent in the area, which includes more than a dozen respected colleges and universities from which TQL can hire local graduates,” said Byrne.
