Troy, Michigan – Mayor Dane Slater and the Troy City Council, along with Total Quality Logistics (TQL) officials today announced that the third party logistics company is opening a new sales office in the city of Troy, Michigan, a northern suburb of Detroit. 

“The City of Troy is very pleased to welcome Total Quality Logistics to our community,” Mayor Dane Slater said.  “TQL’s new Troy location, the company’s first in Michigan, reaffirms Troy’s standing as Michigan’s premier address for business, retail and commerce.  Troy is committed to providing outstanding services to our 6,000 businesses and 81,000 residents.  We are so proud that TQL chose Troy as its first Michigan location.  Welcome!” 

TQL is one of the largest freight brokerage firms in the nation, connecting shippers who have truckload freight that needs to be moved with quality carriers who have the capacity to move it. With the addition of the Troy office, TQL now operates 23 offices in 12 states across the country, employing close to 2,500 people nationwide.

“Our national satellite offices are extremely important in our ability to grow market share and continue to be the leading service provider in the third party logistics industry,” said TQL Executive Vice President, Kerry Byrne.

Last year, TQL arranged the movement of more than 815,000 loads of freight and posted sales of more than $1.6 billion.

TQL was featured in the November issue of Inc. magazine as one of the top job creators in the country and recognized by the publisher of G.I. Jobs magazine as one of this country’s most Military Friendly Employers.

“We offer careers for entry-level employees that allow them to progress quickly and take on leadership roles. More than 90% of the current sales leadership within our organization has been promoted from within,” said Byrne.

TQL’s new Troy office is located in Troy Place at 3221 W. Big Beaver Rd., Suite 110. People can apply for jobs immediately and should start the process online at www.tqljobs.com. Prior experience in the logistics industry is not necessary as new hires with the company participate in a 26 week training program.
