Total Quality Logistics to Create 75 New Jobs in Miami
Total Quality Logistics (TQL), one of the largest freight-brokerage firms in the country, will be expanding in Miami and creating 75 new jobs over the next three years.
The expansion will also create a capital investment of approximately $600,000 in Miami-Dade County. This is the company’s sixth location in Florida, joining existing operations in Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Tampa Bay, and Fort Lauderdale.
“TQL has created hundreds of jobs across the state and we are excited to announce their expansion in Miami,” said Governor Rick Scott, who made the announcement. “Growing businesses like TQL mean more opportunities for Floridians to succeed and provide for their families. By cutting $1 billion in taxes and creating the new $250 million Florida Enterprise Fund this year, we will keep Florida on track to becoming first for jobs.”
The Miami expansion is in addition to the recent announcement that TQL will add 100 new jobs as a part of the Daytona Beach expansion and 200 new jobs as a part of their new carrier services division in Tampa. The company opened its first Florida location in 2010 and currently employs nearly 450 Floridians across the state. They have been recognized numerous times as a top employer both statewide and by publications in each city where it operates.
“We’re excited to continue to expand in Florida,” said TQL President Kerry Byrne. “Opening in a world-class city like Miami helps attract the kind of highly motivated employees who will allow us to grow our market share and maintain our leadership role in the third-party logistics business.”
The TQL expansion was made possible through partnerships between Enterprise Florida, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Miami-Dade County, and the Beacon Council.
“Florida is the number-one state for transportation infrastructure in the country, making the Sunshine State the ideal location for logistics and distribution companies,” said Bill Johnson, Enterprise Florida President and CEO. “We thank TQL for their continued commitment to Florida and congratulate them for the expansion of their logistics operation in Miami and their creation of 75 new jobs for Florida families.”
“TQL is taking advantage of all that Florida has to offer to grow its thriving business,” said Cissy Proctor, executive director of the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. “TQL’s expanding infrastructure across the Sunshine State is a testament to Florida’s business-friendly climate and skilled workforce.”
TQL’s Miami office will open with a founding team of five current employees and plans to bring on at least four people in its first hiring class. TQL plans to bring 75 new jobs to the city over the next three years.
