Total Quality Logistics, a freight brokerage firm headquartered in Cincinnati, recently received an award from the American Jobs for America’s Heroes campaign. The award, which will be presented at the National Guard Association, headquartered in Washington D.C., honors outstanding companies who employ National Guard and other service veterans, according to a news release.

“We hire vets and members of the National Guard because they possess the skills and values we are looking for — an outstanding work ethic, the ability to learn new skills quickly, and the tenacity for creating success in any situation,” Kerry Byrne, Total Quality’s executive vice president, said in a press release.

Founded in 1997, Total Quality Logistics specializes in moving truckload freight and third-party logistics. As one of the largest freight brokerage firms in the nation, the company currently employs more than 2,800 people in 27 offices in 16 states.
