Florida Gov Rick Scott announced that Total Quality Logistics (TQL), one of the largest freight-brokerage firms in the United States, will be expanding in Miami and creating 75 new jobs over the next three years.
The expansion will also create a capital investment of approximately $600,000 in Miami-Dade County. This is the company’s sixth location in Florida, joining existing operations in Jacksonville, Daytona Beach, Orlando, Tampa Bay, and Fort Lauderdale.
Scott said, “TQL has created hundreds of jobs across the state and we are excited to announce their expansion in Miami today. Growing businesses like TQL mean more opportunities for Floridians to succeed and provide for their families. By cutting $1 billion in taxes and creating the new $250 million Florida Enterprise Fund this year, we will keep Florida on track to becoming first for jobs.”
The Miami expansion is in addition to the recent announcement that TQL will add 100 new jobs as a part of the Daytona Beach expansion and 200 new jobs as a part of their new carrier services division in Tampa. TQL opened its first Florida location in 2010 and currently employs nearly 450 Floridians across the state.
TQL’s expansion was made possible through partnerships between Enterprise Florida, Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, Miami-Dade County, and the Beacon Council.
The Miami office will open with a founding team of five current employees and plans to hire at least four people in its first hiring class before opening. TQL plans to bring 75 new jobs to the city over the next three years. The office, located in Museum Tower at 150 West Flagler Street, Suite 1450 in Miami, is scheduled to open for business March 21, 2016.
