The new nine-acre site is a great strategic fit for Transport America’s Solo and Team Operations, its expanding regional presence, as well as its strong presence in the Mexican market. The facility has a gated yard with security, full-service maintenance shop, fuel, and driver amenities such as driver’s lounge, showers, Internet, ATM, and laundry. Not only is this facility beneficial for Transport America operations, but it will also have a positive impact on the Dallas community with jobs created.
“We are very excited to add this Support Center to our network,” said Scott Arves, Chief Executive Officer and President. “In July of 2012, Transport America was named the fastest growing truckload carrier by Transport Topics, and this investment allows us to deliver our commitment to grow to support our customers and our professional driver base. We expect to hire more than 200 employees in the area over the next few years.”
