Total Quality Logistics is expanding its presence in Arizona with a new office in Tucson.
The company opened its Phoenix office in 2016 and has more than 100 team members at that location. Tucson is TQL’s 57th location nationwide.
“We’ve been in the state of Arizona for seven years and are proud to grow our team and deepen our commitment with this office in the incredible and unique Tucson community,” TQL President Kerry Byrne said. “We chose Tucson because it is a major transportation hub and has a great pool of talent. We’re excited to be part of such a vibrant and growing city.”
The company, founded in Cincinnati in 1997, works with 160,000-plus carriers and offers a wide array of logistics services.
“Pima County is a perfect location for a third-party logistics provider to call home thanks to our multimodal transportation hub and access to international markets,” said Jan Lesher, Pima County administrator. “We want to thank TQL for recognizing the value of living and working in Pima County and Southern Arizona.”
