R+L Global Logistics Plans To Expand Its Fort Myers, Florida, Operations Center

01/04/2016
R+L Global Logistics, a domestic and international transportation company, will be expanding to create more than 80 new jobs over the next three year in Fort Myers, Florida. The company has already created 88 jobs in Fort Myers, including 31 new jobs in 2015 alone.

The company recently moved from a 9,000 square foot facility on College Parkway in Fort Myers to a new 27,000 square foot facility in the Island Park Center in South Fort Myers, which allows the company room to continue expanding. R+L Global also recently created a new initiative to hire and train local Floridians regardless of their logistics or trucking background. The new Logistics Training Academy launched in November with 14 new associates who are undergoing eight weeks of training so they can graduate to become full time employees.

Jeff Haungs, Vice President of R+L Companies, said, “R+L Global Logistics has experienced incredible success in Florida and worldwide since its creation in 2009. We appreciate Governor Scott joining us today to recognize our hard working team, and we are excited to see R+L Global’s continued growth in our new, larger facility here in Fort Myers.”

Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Jesse Panuccio said, “Florida is a leader in global trade and logistics and R+L Global’s recent expansion announcement is great news for the Ft. Myers region. The Scott Administration’s pro-growth policies have fostered the growth of more than one million jobs, and this business expansion adds to that impressive record.”

Governor Rick Scott said, “Florida companies like R+L Global Logistics have helped create more than one million jobs across our state in just five years. I am proud to highlight their recent growth in Fort Myers and announce their plans to create more than 80 new jobs for families today. We will continue to support Florida job creators by cutting $1 billion in taxes and creating the Florida Enterprise Fund so we can diversify our economy and make Florida first for jobs.”
