Trident Transport Opens Third Location In Minneapolis Area

Tuesday, July 16, 2019

Trident Transport has opened their third location in the Minneapolis area.

Leading the charge for the Minneapolis branch, Ryan Johnson, vice president of Sales at Trident Transport, has 25 years of experience in the freight industry to help spearhead Trident’s expansion efforts to the upper Midwest.

“When presented the opportunity to lead this expansion, I jumped at the chance,” said Mr. Johnson. “I look forward to building something special here in the greater Minneapolis market. Trident has done an excellent job building a stellar reputation within our market, as well as, a tremendous culture, which is a privilege to be a part of.”

Minneapolis-St. Paul was ranked No. 18 on the Best Places for Businesses and Careers list by Forbes, coming in at No. 97 for job growth. The Northwest I-94 corridor of the metro area presents a growth opportunity for the Minneapolis branch, according to Mr. Johnson. Trident’s Minnesota office is in the Otsego area in the newly-developed Waterfront Commons III building.  

“We look forward to the challenge of building an extension of what has already been established in Chattanooga and Tampa up here in Minnesota,” said Mr. Johnson. “I’ve been on the customer side, asset side, and brokerage side of the freight business for over two decades. We can’t wait to get started.”

Trident Transport plans to hire 50 people for the remainder of 2019 in the Minneapolis 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.

This move comes after a string of success throughout the past year that landed Trident Transport on the Inc. 500/5000 list for fastest-growing companies in North America, ranking No. 1 in Chattanooga, No. 7 in Tennessee, and No. 400 in North America, said officials. Additionally, Trident Transport was a finalist for Best of the Best Places to Work and Small Business of the Year in Chattanooga. Their expansion into the Tampa Bay area this past October has laid the foundation for future expansions.

 

Trident Transport is a logistics company that is dedicated to providing a personal, reliable, and trustworthy relationship to its partners, eliminating supply chain problems, and offering solutions to meet the demands of their customers.

 

In recent years, Trident Transport has strived to consistently improve the quality of their work and are committed to keep getting better. They want to further develop and maintain their position as one of the leading logistics companies in North America and ensure supply chain solutions to their valued customers.
