BlueGrace Logistics Expands Riverview, Florida Headquarters
The company offers a web-based proprietary transportation management system, BlueShip, that enables companies to consolidate all of their shipping requirements into one resource, as well as freight services including Less Than Truckload, Truckload Services, International and Domestic Air Freight, Ocean Freight, and Supply Chain Management. The new jobs will fulfill a variety of functions in the organization, including technology, accounting, legal and professional services.
“More than ever, top talent from across the U.S. wants to make Tampa their home,” said Bobby Harris, CEO of BlueGrace Logistics. “This partnership helps make that a reality. We couldn’t be more excited to further our investment in expanding in this market.”
Bill Johnson, President/CEO of Enterprise Florida said, “Our expansive, multi-modal infrastructure not only supports nearly 20 million residents but close to 100 million annual visitors to our state. It’s a compelling reason for great companies like BlueGrace Logistics to have a presence in Florida and we’re happy they’ve decided to locate here.”
The headquarters project was made possible through strong partnerships between the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Hillsborough County, the Tampa Hillsborough Economic Development Corporation and Enterprise Florida.
Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Jesse Panuccio said, “Tampa continues to be a leading market in Florida’s economic resurgence and we are pleased to see that BlueGrace Logistics recognizes the potential for growth in this area. These additional 100 jobs will provide even more opportunities in the Tampa area and contribute to Florida’s thriving private sector.”
“BlueGrace Logistics is a prime example of the kind of innovative, high growth local company that we will work hard to retain in Hillsborough County,” said the Hon. Sandra Murman, Chair of the Hillsborough County Board of County Commissioners. “Three other states have offered BlueGrace attractive relocation packages and attempted to recruit them away from our region, but we are committed to keeping them here and giving them the support they need to achieve greater success and bring more jobs to our community.”
