The Cincinnati-based logistics services provider ended 2014 on another high note, brokering its record-breaking 1 millionth freight load, according to a news release.
The Dec. 26 shipment marked the first time the company reached seven figures in loads, surpassing the more-than 815,000 loads it moved in 2013, the release said.
2014 also marked a successful year for the company’s charitable efforts, with TQL employees contributing to a record-breaking 2014 and celebrating their success with substantial end-of-year philanthropic gifts to several charities.
TQL staff across the country selected how they wanted to allocate a $50,000 company gift divided among the American Heart Association, American Cancer Society, Wounded Warriors, United Service Organizations, Toys for Tots, Salvation Army, Freestore Foodbank, Feeding America, Boys & Girls Club of America and the Jimmy V Foundation.
“We are very aware of the many needs of the communities in which we operate,” said Kerry Byrne, TQL executive vice president. “Our company is fortunate to be in a growth mode, allowing us to create jobs and help many worthwhile organizations across the country.”
TQL’s charitable giving focuses on children, education, health, wellness and military support.
TQL has given more than $3 million to charitable organizations across the country during the past four years, the release said.
