ITS Logistics Doubles Downtown Office Space, Ranks #44 in US Out of More Than 20,000 Freight Brokerage Firms
RENO, Nev. (June 28, 2019) — ITS National, the non-asset transportation division of ITS Logistics, continues its torrid pace of growth, and will be more than doubling the size of its downtown Reno office. The new space will expand into the top 2 floors of the four-story office tower at 50 West Liberty Street this summer.
“Our continued success and rapid growth means that we need more space for our staff in our downtown location,” said Scott Pruneau, CEO of ITS Logistics. “We continue to drive value for our stakeholders through execution and investment in people and tools that deliver. We now have more than 120 team members downtown in sales, operations, management, technology, and finance… and we’re just getting started.”
ITS National provides non-asset and asset-light truckload, LTL, intermodal and drayage services, along with complete transportation management to large and small businesses across North America. In it’s almost 7 years the division has grown significantly and now ranks number 44 on the Transport Topics TOP 50 Freight Brokerage Firms list, out of more than 20,000 registered brokerages.
Mike Crawford, President of ITS National, was told there would be challenges succeeding in Reno, but the company continues to grow as it expands into first-class office space in the heart of downtown, less than a mile from the University, and only two blocks from the popular Midtown district.
“Since we started back in 2013, we’ve consistently been told that we couldn’t build it in Reno, that we couldn’t grow here, that we needed to move to a bigger city to branch out and expand,” said Crawford. “But we believe in this community, our University and downtown Reno. This is our home, and not only have we made it work, we’ve flourished. We’re are very blessed to be part of this community.”
ITS has built strong ties to the University of Nevada, Reno, including becoming a College of Business Corporate Partner, constantly involved in school classes, activities and events. They also work closely with Nevada Athletics offering mentoring and hiring some of the best student athletes upon graduation. In fact, ITS currently employs more than 30 former college athletes from across the country, many of whom played baseball, softball, soccer, or football.
The company, which is undertaking significant tenant improvements in the newly leased office space, expects to complete its move in September, 2019. The building is owned and managed by Reno-based Basin Street Properties.
“ITS Logistics is the ideal Reno business story,” said Scott Stranzl, Vice President of Leasing for Basin Street Properties. “A tech-savvy, locally founded company, with this division run by a Nevada Wolf Pack football hero, growing through hiring Nevada grads and succeeding at the national level in their industry. We’re proud to partner with them and assist in any way we can to help them continue to grow.”
ITS Logistics is one of the fastest growing third-party logistics companies in the nation. A 2015 partnership with investment firms McNally Capital and Coughlin Capital to enhance the growth of the company highlights ITS Logistics’ long-term stability in Northern Nevada, as well as its projected future expansion in other strategic markets throughout the country.
