Total Quality Logistics announced it would construct a second building on its headquarters campus to accommodate nearly 600 new employees that the company anticipates hiring, primarily in sales and information technology roles, over the next five years.

The Cincinnati-based company is finalizing plans on the design of the building. TQL estimates construction costs to be $20 million, plus an additional investment to renovate its current site.

TQL ranks No. 25 on the Transport Topics Top 50 list of the largest logistics companies in North America.

“Logistics is an increasingly tech-driven industry, and we continue to make substantial investments in our proprietary technology solutions, such as TQL Trax, to improve transparency, communication and drive greater efficiencies in transportation,” President Kerry Byrne said in a company release. This headquarters expansion will cater to the needs of technology professionals so we can attract and retain the highest levels of technology talent.” — Transport Topics
