Total Quality Logistics opening Sarasota freight office, adding 100 jobs
SARASOTA, Fla. — Ohio based freight-brokerage firm Total Quality Logistics (TQL) is expanding to open a Sarasota office, the company’s seventh location in Florida. The new Sarasota office joins TQL locations in Tampa, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Jacksonville, Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
TQL’s new office in the BB&T Building at 1800 2nd Street in downtown Sarasota is scheduled to open in June, and will include a $600,000 capital investment. The expansion was made possible through partnerships between Enterprise Florida, the Economic Development Corporation (EDC) of Sarasota County, The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Sarasota County, and the City of Sarasota.
“This expansion will bring job opportunities to Sarasota, and we think it’s a great fit,” says TQL Communications Specialist Mark Motz.
Total Quality Logistics plans to create 100 jobs in Sarasota by 2020 including sales, managerial positions and customer service agents to manage the processes and logistics of transportation between shippers and truck carriers. TQL opened its first offices in Florida in 2010, and currently employs 450 people in the state. Check for TQL jobs here.
