Nevada’s ITS Logistics To Open Transportation Center in Fort Worth

The center will be located in the heart of Fort Worth’s Cultural District and create roughly 300 jobs over the next three to four years, ITS said. It will be ITS Logistics’ second location in Fort Worth after its 1.1-million-square-foot distribution center, which opened last year.

Reno, Nevada-based ITS Logistics announced it will open a newly remodeled 20,000-square-foot Transportation Center in Fort Worth in 3Q 2024.

ITS Logistics describes itself as one of North America’s fastest-growing modern third-party logistics companies, and said the new center marks “a new milestone of growth despite economic headwinds in the freight industry.”

“Expanding the geographic footprint of our asset-lite logistics business is a natural evolution within our modern 3PL business model,” CEO Scott Pruneau said in a statement. “Our new center in Fort Worth gives us a physical presence in a growing supply chain hub serving many thriving industries. We’re excited about the opportunities this expansion will create for our team members and the continued value we will be able to unlock for our business partners.”

Adding roughly 300 jobs within four years

The center will be located in the heart of Fort Worth’s Cultural District and create roughly 300 jobs over the next three to four years, ITS said. It will be ITS Logistics’ second Transportation Center and second location in Fort Worth, with the first being its 1.1-million-square-foot distribution center that opened last year.

Working with Fortune 500 companies across North America, ITS Logistics said it provides a full suite of premium transportation services. The Fort Worth Transportation Center will grow its operations, including the management of network transportation, drayage and intermodal, distribution and fulfillment, final-mile delivery, and managed solutions.

ITS said that expanding its presence in Fort Worth is the latest in a series of investments the company has made over the last year, including the buildout of its Indianapolis distribution campus to nearly 1.5 million square feet, the opening of its distribution facility in Fort Worth, the launch of its Tech Innovation Center in Walnut Creek, California, and the release of the company’s container management and visibility platform, ContainerAI.

Fort Worth’s City Council approved tax incentive grants to ITS Logistics in its May 14 session.

“We’re excited that ITS Logistics is growing in Fort Worth by adding a new office and hundreds of high-wage jobs,” said Robert Allen, president and CEO of the Fort Worth Economic Development Partnership, said in a statement. “As Fort Worth continues to grow, this expansion by ITS Logistics underscores our commitment to fostering economic development and job creation in our community.”

ITS Logistics President Manny McElroy will be heading up the new center in Fort Worth, the company said.

McElroy has been with ITS Logistics since 2012 and recently was promoted from SVP of transportation. McElroy previously held various roles at OHL, XPO Logistics, and Schneider National.

“We’re excited about the continued expansion of our capabilities and the overall strategy of combining our asset and asset-lite transportation offerings with our distribution services in key markets, powered by some of the best technology in supply chain,” McElroy said in a statement. “For me and my family, getting the opportunity to lead this expansion in Fort Worth for a company that truly values people, relationships, and our communities is really special. I am honored to be a part of it.”

ITS Logistics said it is immediately hiring for positions in logistics management, transportation sales, human resources, information technology, and more.
