R2 Logistics, Inc., a Third Party Logistics service provider, today announced it has opened a new operating branch in Dallas, Texas at 3500 Oak Lawn Ave. This is the fourth operating branch in addition to operations in Novi, Mich.; Westerville, Ohio; and Jacksonville, Florida.

Currently, one manager, Zach Nadaud, and the VP of Sales, Ben Jordan, are servicing customers out of the 3,618 square foot office capable of holding 36 employees. Plans are to have 6 employees in house by the end of 2012. Applications are currently being accepted for the Logistics Coordinator positions.

“These are exciting times for our company,” stated R2 Logistics President and CEO, Ben Gase. “Establishing a Southwest presence in Dallas allows us to align ourselves with our goal of growing 100 percent year over year by tapping into the gigantic freight market that Texas has to offer. The level of talent we can acquire in this young and energetic city will also be to our benefit. As with our other branches, we expect this branch to grow organically and be profitable in one year’s time. The opening of this branch is just the start of our plan to begin opening two or three branches a year.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
