Total Quality Logistics Opens Distribution Hub In High Point, North Carolina
Based in Cincinnati, Ohio, TQL is the second largest freight brokerage firm in North America. The firm connects customers in a variety of industries to trucks belonging to carriers and owner-operators for efficient and reliable transportation.
“Opening a new location in High Point helps us to build on the success we’ve had in North Carolina for several years,” said TQL president Kerry Byrne. “Charlotte was our company’s third-ever satellite office to open in the country, and we are pleased to continue to grow our footprint in the state.”
The expansion by TQL was made possible in part by a performance-based grant of up to $70,000 from the One North Carolina Fund. The One NC Fund provides financial assistance, through local governments, to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state. Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and capital investment targets to qualify for grant funds. All One NC grants require a local government match.
Among the organizations and entities working with N.C. Commerce and EDPNC in supporting TQL’s expansion were the North Carolina General Assembly, the North Carolina Community College System, the City of High Point, the High Point Economic Development Corporation, the Guilford County Economic Development Alliance and the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce.
“Logistics providers like TQL connect North Carolina businesses to their markets,” said Commerce Secretary John E. Skvarla III. “They help catalyze our state’s $337 billion supply-chain economy.”
