Tucker opens Boston, Albany offices
Tucker Co. has opened branch offices in Boston and Albany.
Cherry Hill, N.J.-based Tucker provides logistics services for commercial shippers throughout North America, including freight transportation management for truckload and less-than-truckload freight, intermodal, expedited, and air freight.
The Boston office will be headed by Hugh McLaughlin, vice president-sales, and the Albany office will be headed by Rossie Knight, senior customer service coordinator.
“New England is a strong market for freight, especially in the industry categories that we specialize in, including technology, chemicals, health care and pharmaceuticals,” stated Jeffrey Tucker, chief executive. He added that the Boston office “also brings us physically closer to the many carriers we work with in the region.”
The Albany office is the company’s first off-site, customer service only office. The central New York location provides valuable support for Tucker’s Dedicated Logistics division.
Tucker said in addition to the opening of the two new branch offices, the company recently launched a new consulting division and completed a 50 percent expansion of its headquarters office in Cherry Hill.
“This has been a strong year for our company during these challenging times in the transportation industry,” Jeffrey Tucker said.
