Transplace’s Investment in a New Center of Excellence
Yesterday, we announced that we are breaking ground on a new operations center in Rogers, Arkansas. The goal of the newest Center of Excellence (COE) is twofold: to support our growing investment in technology and to accommodate our plan as an organization to add hundreds of new employees over the next several years. This will continue to strengthen our ability to deliver comprehensive technology and logistics services to today’s supply chain.
With a deep heritage in Northwest Arkansas, Transplace has continued to expand our presence in the region over the past 15 years. Ongoing investment in this area, which has become a global logistics hub, supports our company’s vision and goals while building value for our customers and creating attractive opportunities for employees.
What Can You Expect at the New Operations Center?
In recent years, Transplace has experienced tremendous growth – both organically and through strategic acquisition – and we continue to invest in our infrastructure, human capital and technology systems in order to drive future growth and deliver greater value to our customers. The construction on the new facility, which will expand our footprint from approximately 80,000 square feet (sf.) to 150,000 sf., is set to begin immediately, and Transplace employees are expected to move in to the new location by early 2021.
What Does the New Facility Mean for Our Employees and Customers?
The new COE is an exciting step in our evolution as a premier provider of transportation and logistics services across North America, and presents tremendous benefits for both Transplace employees and customers, including:
- Enhancing Our Ongoing Culture of Success: Transplace continues to thrive based on a culture of innovation and collaboration with our customers and employees, and the new COE will support that culture. The architectural design of the custom building will help to create a collaborative, high-energy environment where Transplace employees can thrive and work with customers towards better logistics solutions and network innovations.
- Augmenting Transplace’s Continuing Commitment to our Customers: Transplace is committed to providing innovative technology and logistics solutions to our customers. To achieve this goal and to continuously deliver meaningful value and exceptional service to our customers, we need a modern, high-tech workspace that attracts high-potential talent. The new COE will be a place where shippers and Transplace employees can collaborate towards better individual shipper solutions as well as cross-customer network solutions.
