Trident Transport is expanding to the Tampa Bay, Fl. area with plans to open in early 2019. 

To lead the move, Trident Transport selected Rush Feldhacker as their vice president of Sales for the Tampa Bay office.  

Mr. Feldhacker comes from a background in the industry where he’ll be bringing his work experience and knowledge with him to Trident Transport Tampa Bay.  

"When looking to open our second office, Tampa Bay was an extremely attractive option,” said Mr. Feldhacker. “Not only does it have a surplus of talent to pull from, it is also growing at an extremely rapid rate. It is a community we wanted to be a part of.”

Trident Transport plans to hire 20 to 30 people in early 2019 for the Tampa Bay office and will be attending various college and career fairs to attract potential employees. 

Those interested in applying can submit their resume and application on Trident Transport’s website at www.tridenttransport.com/careers.

“We’re extremely excited to extend our reach in North America,” said Heath Haley, president of Trident Transport. “We saw a fantastic opportunity down South and jumped on the chance to grow our company. We’ve seen a lot of success in Chattanooga, so we’re ready to take that down to Tampa Bay.” 

This move comes after a string of success throughout the year that landed Trident Transport on the Inc. 500/5000 list for fastest-growing companies in North America ranking No. 1 for the fastest-growing company in Chattanooga, No. 7 in Tennessee, and No. 400 in North America. Additionally, Trident Transport was a finalist for Best of the Best Best Place to Work in Chattanooga.

Trident Transport is a third-party logistics company that provides personal, reliable, and trustworthy relationship to its partners, eliminating supply chain problems, and offering solutions to meet the demands of their customers, said officials.
