Network Transport Completes Company Headquarters Move To Offices In The CBL Building

Thursday, March 3, 2022
Network Transport announced today that the company has completed its move to a new headquarters facility inside the CBL Building located near Hamilton Place. Prior to the move, Network Transport had run its Chattanooga operation within 4,400 square feet of office space in the Loveman’s building on Cherry Street.
 
The new headquarters location, spanning 14,000 square feet of the CBL Building, is part of a strategic move by Network Transport as the company projects that it will be creating 100 new Chattanooga-based jobs within its operation over the next 12 months, officials said.
In addition to more than doubling the square footage from its previous downtown location, Network Transport’s move to the Class A space at its new headquarters also provides the logistics company the opportunity to expand its current footprint within the building to accommodate its future growth needs.
 
“One of the most important responsibilities of running a company is to make sure that your people have a workspace that can comfortably meet their needs and the needs of our operation,” said Network Transport President David Ferguson. “As much as we liked our office on Cherry Street and enjoyed being part of downtown Chattanooga, we knew the day was fast-approaching that we would grow beyond the space in the Loveman’s building. In looking at what could best fit our needs as we proactively plan for what’s on the horizon for Network Transport, our new location offers our company and our employees a number of advantages.
 
“First of all, our new offices are state of the art with a layout and an existing infrastructure that provides everything that our company and our employees need from a facilities standpoint to be successful in what we do. In addition to having access to free parking and a secured entrance, our new location has an on-premises workout facility and a spacious lunch area within the building. Plus, being a part of Hamilton Place, restaurants and other businesses are just minutes away from our location. Looking at where we are today and where we know we are going in the future, this move came at the right time and it’s brought us to the right place.”
 
Company officials believe that the move from downtown to the Hamilton Place area, which has ready access to I-75, will assist Network Transport as it seeks to fill the 100 new jobs the company projects it will be adding to the Chattanooga operation during the next 12 months. "Operating from its new headquarters, Network Transport will be well positioned to add to its workforce from both Bradley County and North Georgia in addition to Chattanooga and Hamilton County," officials said.
 
“As everyone knows, the job market is incredibly competitive these days, especially in the transportation and logistics industries,” said Bob Poulos, the chief commercial officer for Network Transport. “Not only are we growing as a company, but Network Transport is committed to bringing what we are calling life-changing logistics jobs to the Chattanooga region. The jobs we are adding to this market will be offering an industry-leading pay structure with essentially an unlimited earnings potential, and every position we’re adding is supported by an innovative, industry-best training program that is designed to comfortably welcome people with no logistics experience into a fast-growing industry.
 
“As we bring these jobs into the Chattanooga market, it is very important for Network Transport to have a headquarters location that offers an easy commute to residents in Hamilton County as well as residents in North Georgia and Bradley County. Our move to the new office space and location is perfect for our current needs and our needs as we plan for the future. We have a strong workforce at Network Transport, a great training program and we’re working in an industry that will continue to be in high demand with the supply chain further tightening. We are looking forward to working in our new office space, welcoming new employees and contributing to our community with jobs that can make a true difference in people’s lives.” 

Network Transport is planning to hold a grand opening celebration for the company’s new headquarters on Tuesday, March 22. Company officials plan to host a number of officials and dignitaries from the City of Chattanooga, Hamilton County, Bradley County, North Georgia and the state of Tennessee. The event will also feature some Network Transport’s customers, area civic groups and members of the media.
