Corporate Traffic today said that it has opened an office in Charlotte, the company’s only satellite operation outside of its Jacksonville, Fla., headquarters.
The office, at 1515 Shopton Road, opened March 1 with three employees, but a spokesman said the company plans to hire two to three more employees over the next two months.
In a press release, the company, which provides truckload transportation, warehousing and distribution services, said the office will help it meet growing demand in the Charlotte region.
“We have seen steady growth among our clients in the North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia region,” President Chris Cline said in a statement. “Opening the Charlotte office allows us to provide even more personal service to our clients and have a more pronounced local presence to serve new clients in the future.
In the Charlotte area, the company provides managed-less-than-truckload, truckload, intermodal and airfreight services. “Corporate Traffic will continue to provide those services from its new Charlotte office while also building its own asset-based trucking fleet in the Charlotte market,” the press release said, adding that with Charlotte “being an epicenter of logistics activity in the region, Corporate Traffic’s new office will have a closer proximity to Charlotte’s rail centers as well as the Charlotte Douglas/International Airport.”
Cline called Charlotte a growing market in the logistics industry.
“Specifically with the airport and its pending interior rail-freight terminal, Charlotte is on the cusp of becoming a heavy player in ground and air transportation,” he said. “We are prepared to capitalize on this growth and leverage Charlotte’s assets to our clients’ advantage.”
