CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tranco, a broad based logistics provider headquartered in Chattanooga, TN, today announced the launch of Tranco Global, a supplier of international supply chain solutions.
To assist in the expansion, the company tapped industry veteran Brad Kemp to help co-found the company. "Brad is a 30-year veteran of the industry, having worked for some of the world's largest operators like FedEx and UPS," said Bruce Trantham speaking from the Tranco headquarters. "Additionally, he's helped us negotiate the complicated licensing process required for market entry."
When asked about the expansion, Mr. Kemp added, "I couldn't be more thrilled to join the team. The Tranco organization has been able to make some real impact in the southeast. The addition of Tranco Global provides an opportunity to expand both nationally and globally."
"Tranco Global is full service international supply chain provider, offering ocean and air, import and export services." Mr. Kemp continued, "This industry has truly been evolving. Only recently, international forwarders felt the need to have offices in every port location. Even today, you will see competitors with 50 or more offices spread throughout the United States. With the advent of paperless technology, we are no longer required to have a brick-and-mortar office in every remote port location.
"This untethering of service to geography will allow Tranco to recruit and grow here in Chattanooga based on those things that make this such a great place to live and work. Our goal is to establish a significant corporate presence here in Chattanooga, opening remote gateway offices only as strategically required."
Twin brothers Bruce and Byron Trantham founded Tranco in 1995 with one truck and a small warehouse. The business has now expanded to over 250 employees and contractors, 500 units of rolling stock, and over 1.5 million square feet of warehouse space in the Chattanooga area. Since opening Tranco, the Company has built a loyal following of small, medium, large, and multinational customers. Tranco Logistics and its sister companies provide a complete suite of supply services including, truckload, truck brokerage, and warehousing. Through the Tranco Global Network, the Company now provides ocean cargo, airfreight, and customs clearance solutions in over 180 countries. Visit www.trancoglobal.com for more information.
