Tampa 3PL Continues Momentum with Job Creation and Acquisitions
Large acquisitions are dominating the 3PL industry and BlueGrace Logistics is no stranger to progress. Over the last year, BlueGrace Logistics, a privately owned, non-asset based third party logistics provider (3PL), has gained momentum with franchise acquisitions, job creation and most recently purchasing, G-Force Shipping out of Boston, Massachusetts.
“The timing of this acquisition couldn’t be better as we both are experiencing a huge amount of success. The potential for job creation within both of our communities is on point with our current mission and commitment to growth.” Said Bobby Harris, CEO/Founder of BlueGrace Logistics.
Once a franchise of BlueGrace Logistics, Boston-based G-Force Shipping was founded in 2009 and currently employs 16 people, with over 91 partner carriers. G-Force Shipping has been unwavering in the 3PL industry and is widely recognized in the SMB market, especially in the Boston area.
“Moving our book of business over to BlueGrace Logistics will not only increase our resources, but will ultimately benefit our shippers,” Said Scott Guilbeaut, CEO of G-Force Shipping. “This transition will be an exciting one for both G-Force and BlueGrace as we increase our foothold in the freight and shipping industry.”
Job Creation and Company Culture to Continue
Not only does this acquisition bring new jobs and revenue, G-Force Shipping is a perfect fit for the BlueGrace model of a charitable and pacesetting company culture.
“G-Force brings value to our current ‘company culture’ as they have been voted as a Best Place to Work in Boston, by the Boston Business Journal.” Said Mercedes Essmann, Director of Recruiting for BlueGrace. “Their office will be an extension of our corporate location and we will continue to strive for hiring the people and not the resume.”
The acquisition of G-Force Shipping is one of many, as BlueGrace continues to become a stalwart in the logistics industry. The growth capabilities within the logistics, freight and shipping market is unprecedented and BlueGrace Logistics will continue to acquire more companies that fit their capacity for growth in the 3PL space.
