Total Quality Logistics Opens Office Center In Downtown Memphis, Tennessee

05/12/2015
Total Quality Logistics will expand its operations by opening a new location in Shelby County, Tennessee. The company will invest $1 million to open a sales office in downtown Memphis to meet the needs of its expanding client-base, creating at least 100 new jobs over the next five years.

TQL is one of the fastest growing providers of transportation logistics services in North America, connecting shippers who have product that needs to be moved with truckload carriers who have the capacity to move it.

This is TQL’s third expansion in Tennessee in just over a year. In January 2014, TQL invested $1 million to open its first Tennessee office in downtown Nashville, committing to create 105 new jobs by the end of 2016. The Nashville office already employs nearly 60. In March 2015, TQL invested $1 million to open its second Tennessee office in downtown Knoxville, committing to create 100 new jobs over the next five years. TQL’s Knoxville office is slated to open in July.

“When a company like TQL chooses to expand three times in the span of a year and a half, it makes a real statement about Tennessee as a true business partner and the kind of employees companies can count on for success,” Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd said. “I want to thank TQL for continuing to invest in Tennessee and creating these new jobs for our communities.”

“We are certainly excited to open our third Tennessee location in Memphis. We would like to thank the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development for their assistance and the people of Memphis for welcoming us to the largest city in the Volunteer State,” said TQL President Kerry Byrne.

“We are pleased to welcome Total Quality Logistics to Memphis,” Susan Hadley Maynor, Vice President of Economic Development for the Greater Memphis Chamber, said. “TQL knew they needed a central location and quality logistic-based workforce. Downtown Memphis offers both.”

Tennessee Valley Authority and MLGW congratulate Total Quality Logistics on its latest announcement to add 100 new jobs in Memphis,” TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley said. “We are pleased to partner with the State of Tennessee, the Greater Memphis Chamber, EDGE, City of Memphis, and Shelby County to support existing business and industry growth.”
