Columbus, OH — BBI Logistics LLC, a freight brokerage firm specializing in handling full truck load shipments among other transportation solutions, has announced plans to expand its headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, creating 150 new jobs, with support from the Ohio Development Services Agency and JobsOhio. Hiring for sales, IT, marketing and administrative office positions has already begun.
Located at 80 East Rich Street in Downtown Columbus, BBI Logistics currently has 60 full time employees with plans to almost quadruple its workforce within the next three years. The company has greatly increased its client base across the country over the past few years and this expansion will allow BBI Logistics to seamlessly serve its customers while continuing to scale.
“This expansion is essential to accommodate the significant growth we’ve experienced since launching the company three years ago,” said BBI Logistics Founder Brent Bosse. “From the Region’s access to the broader U.S. market to its talented local workforce and strong logistics sector, we’ve been impressed with the many advantages of operating out of Columbus.”
Founded in Columbus in 2017, BBI Logistics helps customers find the most cost-effective and reliable carrier, while also maximizing load potential for carriers. In addition to full truck load shipments, the company also provides specialized and expedited equipment, as well as LTL and intermodal services.
“It has been exciting to watch Columbus’ own BBI Logistics succeed in such a short duration of time, and we are even more thrilled to see the team expand their presence in our Downtown,” said Columbus Mayor Andrew J. Ginther. “The Columbus Region is a strategic location for those in the logistics industry, and the scalability of this startup logistics company is further proof of the benefits of operating here.”
With greater access to the U.S. market than any other major metro, the Columbus Region is a strategic location for the movement of goods. More than 4,400 logistics establishments employing over 83,000 employees thrive on the Columbus Region’s ultra-modern interstate highway system, third-party logistics companies and multiple rail terminals. Columbus is located in Franklin County, which is home to an estimated 1,310,300 residents.
“Supported by outstanding talent and the strategic advantage of Ohio and the Columbus Region, BBI Logistics continues to grow at its Columbus headquarters,” said JobsOhio President and CEO J.P. Nauseef. “BBI’s expansion brings 150 jobs, further solidifying its footprint and positive economic impact in Ohio.”
