Cincinnati — Total Quality Logistics (TQL) was recently named one of Florida’s Best Companies to Work For. This is the first time TQL has appeared on this prestigious list. The company opened its satellite office in Tampa, Fla. in 2010. On September 4, TQL will open another new satellite office in Florida, near Fort Lauderdale.
TQL coordinates the movement of freight across North America, primarily by arranging full truckload transportation. TQL is the third-largest freight broker in the nation.
TQL will create approximately 50 jobs at its DCOTA address on Dania Beach within its first two years. TQL’s Tampa office, which started with only six employees, has grown to nearly 100, with plans to add another 70 positions within the next year.

“Florida is our number one recruiting market, outside of our corporate headquarters in Cincinnati,” said Kerry Byrne, executive vice president. “The talent in the area is outstanding. The people really complement the energetic, hard-working corporate culture that is TQL.”
Many of the founding members of the Fort Lauderdale office will initially come from previously established TQL satellite offices up North. The company is working hard to help its new Fort Lauderdale residents get to know their new city.
“We flew all of our team members down to Fort Lauderdale for a house-hunting trip in July. It was a fantastic experience,” said Byrne. “Next week, we will be running a Facebook contest on our Life at TQL page to learn from local residents about “the best of” Fort Lauderdale. From restaurants to recreation, we really want our people to feel at home quickly and experience all of the wonderful things Fort Lauderdale has to offer.”
The fourth annual Florida Best Companies list appears in the August issue of Florida Trend magazine and on FloridaTrend.com. One-hundred companies were recognized. The Best Companies to Work For program was created by Florida Trend and Best Companies Group, and is endorsed by the HR Florida State Council.
