FreightCenter.com Continues Corporate Expansion in 2012
FreightCenter.com continues expansion of its corporate offices, estimating 20 new job openings in the Tampa Bay area by spring 2012.
A sharp rise in the number of managed accounts has yielded the expansion of several divisions during the first quarter of 2012. This growth influences the immediate need for new hires, internal restructuring and eventually additional office space.
“We are on track for another successful year and are proactively enforcing a strategy that will support our 2012 growth predictions,”
The company has restructured its freight and logistics divisions to accommodate a growing customer base. A strategy to reinforce its best-in-class customer support, the objective of the reorganization is to provide a fail-safe system of handling less-than-truckload (LTL) and full truckload transportation.
The expansion will also affect the company’s development team, marketing department and logistics division. Up to six positions will be added to handle the development and marketing of new and current Web applications, proprietary freight software and emerging freight technologies.
The company plans to add additional office space at its headquarters in Florida. Since its last expansion in 2009, FreightCenter.com has maintained two buildings that share a single campus. No plans have been made to relocate, but negotiations are in progress to renovate existing office space.
