Total Quality Logistics – Why Work For Us?


undefined

We help products get from point A to point B throughout North America. Essentially, we keep America moving for you and everyone else who buys anything.

Our customers have freight that needs to be moved. We find the right transportation provider to move that freight, bringing the customer and carrier together and creating the perfect solution for the pickup and delivery of almost any type of product imaginable. AS ONE OF THE LARGEST FREIGHT BROKERAGE FIRMS IN THE NATION, TQL IS EXPANDING RAPIDLY NATIONWIDE.

Why a career in logistics? Companies spend hundreds of millions of dollars on truckload transportation and every year more and more turn to third-party logistics providers (3PLs) like us to handle their needs. This is a career with UNLIMITED POTENTIAL.

We need the best to fill positions in sales, customer service, IT, recruiting, accounting/finance, and so much more.

TQL is a workplace full of positive energy and passionate professionals. Transportation logistics is a fast-paced, constantly changing industry and the people who do this job are highly driven and intensely focused at finding success in any situation – for their customers, themselves, and their teammates.

We unwind and refocus by celebrating the people and the culture that we have created at TQL every chance we get -- in big and small ways. We host lots of parties and after-hours events from rooftop patio parties to 3 on 3 basketball tournaments. Many of the offices participate in intramural or recreational sports teams. And through our TQL Cares program, employees volunteer in the community together. Strong teams are built by strong relationships both inside and outside of the office.

We are a multi-billion dollar leader in the 3PL industry. Our fast-paced, energetic sales model and state-of-the-art technology has propelled us from a startup to the one of the largest freight brokerage firms in North America.

Fierce dedication to our winning principles – integrity, honesty and teamwork – gives us the edge to continually exceed the expectations of its employees, customers and carriers, and makes this a company people are proud to be associated with. Do you have what it takes?


Mike Keane | Vice President of Sales
 
TQL was my first “real” job out of college. We didn’t have a fancy building or amenities back then. But when I came in for my job shadow, I could feel the energy in the room. People were on the phones negotiating or fixing problems. Although it was bare bones, the energetic atmosphere attracted me and I’ve been here for 10 years now.

Bryan Tyson |  Group Sales Manager
 
I was new to the area when I joined TQL. I did not know many people at all. Now I can’t go anywhere around town without running into someone I know. I have made lifelong friends while working at TQL, and the events and activities that the company plans for us truly make us a unique group.
