Trinity, FL, United States, 2009/12/24 - Coupled with 12 years of continued double-digit growth, Freight Center announced today a plan to lease 10,000 SF of new office space in Trinity and hire 75 new employees in the beginning of 2010.
FreightCenter, an online freight and logistics company located in the Tampa Bay area, announces a large expansion of business that includes a substantial increase in both office space and employees and will have a positive economic impact on the Tampa Bay work environment. They will be adding 75 new positions in the coming months and tripling their office space to accommodate the needs of increased business.
At a time when the freight and transportation industry as a whole has had many struggles, FreightCenter has been able to find a niche, providing a service to meet the needs of both businesses and individuals now more than ever. Their website provides rate comparisons for shipping large, heavy items in a very similar manner to how travel websites such as Priceline and Orbitz compare flight and travel prices.
According to the most recent statistics from the Agency for Workforce Innovation, Tampa Bay’s unemployment rate has risen to 12.3% in November. Many people are out of work and struggling as corporations continue to cut back and down size. Companies and individuals are looking to cut costs wherever possible, with shipping prices being a major concern. FreightCenter.com allows an easy portal for cost comparisons, lower prices, and easy online bookings. It’s this unique online solution that has allowed the company to experience double digit growth every year since its inception, earning a spot on the Inc. 5000 list of top-growing private companies for the past three years among many other achievements.
There are a variety of positions that will be available during this expansion process, though the majority of positions will be in the sales department to help with increasing amounts of leads and business coming in daily. The company’s sales force has grown 300% in 2009, and this new hiring will bring many new jobs into the Tampa Bay community and individuals who will contribute to FreightCenter’s continued success.
To jumpstart this new hiring, FreightCenter is holding an on-location job fair at their corporate office in Trinity on January 9, 2010 beginning at 10 AM. This will be an invitation-only event that will include a meet and greet, interviews, testing and potential on-site job offers. Sales- driven, qualified individuals should view our jobs section for details and email their resumes to careers[.]freightcenter.com if interested in attending.
