Buffalo, NY – Global third-party logistics provider ROAR Logistics Inc. has opened a new operations center in Clearwater, Florida.
The new Florida facility is the company’s sixth US location and continues a run of strategic acquisitions and expansion that began more than 18 months ago.
The new office “provides the company and its customers direct access to myriad shipping opportunities through Port Tampa Bay, which handles nearly 40 percent of all cargo moving in and out of the state of Florida,” the company said.
Founded Oct. 1, 2003, ROAR Logistics is a subsidiary of global food manufacturer Rich Products Corp. and offers a broad range of logistics services to an array of local, national and global customers.
In January 2013, ROAR opened its first office on the US West Coast in Temecula, California, extending its reach into Mexico and positioning the company in proximity to the most-active ports in America, including Los Angeles and Long Beach.
In May 2014, ROAR purchased Phoenix-based Legend Transportation Group, a full-service, third-party logistics provider known for its managed solutions model and online, Less Than Truckload (LTL) shipment solutions.
