FreightCenter, Inc., a third-party freight and logistics company developing Web-based tools to simplify freight shipping, will relocate its operations center to a new office park in Palm Harbor, Florida, with plans to create an estimated 60 jobs in the Tampa Bay area.
“FreightCenter has continued to succeed despite the economy and I believe our dedication to introducing new solutions to the freight industry is the primary source of our success,” said Mathew Brosious CEO and co-founder of FreightCenter.com. “We are extremely grateful to our customers, dedicated employees and industry partners for helping make FreightCenter an online leader in freight shipping and logistics.”
The freight service provider will relocate its operation center from Pasco County a few miles south to a larger corporate park in the Highland Lakes area of unincorporated northern Pinellas county, Florida. The company said its move is expected to triple office space and allow the firm to hire additional employees. Investment and additional relocation details were not immediately available. The company said the physical address for the new corporate office will be announced in the first quarter of 2013.
Intending to increase staff by more than 30-percent, the company’s expansion comes ahead of plans to double annual revenues for a fourth consecutive year. “We are outgrowing our current location in Pasco and the new office space will accommodate our existing staff, as well as make room for dozens of new account managers,” said HR Manager Tiffany Brown.
The new location accommodates up to 170 staff members and supports further growth and development. The significant increase in square footage allows FreightCenter to provide an environment where its highly experienced and skilled team of account managers, corporate staff and development group can continue to support, develop and deploy its advanced transportation management software, the company said.
