FreightCenter, an award-winning Tampa Bay area third-party logistics (3PL) provider, recently announced that key changes in company structure and identity are expected to create over 40 new jobs in 2016.
COO Doug Walls described the move as preparatory for projected growth during the year, analyzed at the end of the first quarter. The Palm Harbor, Florida-based company expects most of its development to stem from enterprise sales and is actively seeking qualified applicants in the transportation industry, with a special shout-out to Millennials and recent graduates looking for experience.
“It was a solid foundation in transactional freight shipping that allowed us to become one of the fastest growing companies in the industry during the recession of the 2000s when very few companies were flourishing,” Walls said. “Now, to promote further growth, we’re focusing on scalability. We’re setting our sights on large to enterprise level businesses.”
FreightCenter offers a congenial work atmosphere, training opportunities and attractive compensation. Founded in 1998, it has evolved from a conventional freight brokerage to a full-service 3PL.
“We’re looking for high-quality talent from applicants that want a career, not just a job,” Walls said. “The transportation industry is a $700 billion industry and as a FreightCenter employee you’ll be provided with a solid foundation to grow your career.”
