Trident Transport Opens Third Location in Minneapolis Area

MINNEAPOLIS, MN. July 15, 2019 – As booming growth continues for this Chattanooga-based logistics company, Trident Transport has opened their third location in the Minneapolis area.

Leading the charge for the Minneapolis branch, Ryan Johnson, Vice President of Sales at Trident Transport, has 25 years of experience in the freight industry to help spearhead Trident’s expansion efforts to the upper Midwest.

“When presented the opportunity to lead this expansion, I jumped at the chance,” said Ryan Johnson. “I look forward to building something special here in the greater Minneapolis market. Trident has done an excellent job building a stellar reputation within our market, as well as, a tremendous culture, which is a privilege to be a part of.”

Minneapolis-St. Paul was ranked No. 18 on the Best Places for Businesses and Careers list by Forbes, coming in at No. 97 for job growth. The Northwest I-94 corridor of the metro area presents a tremendous growth opportunity for the Minneapolis branch, according to Johnson. Trident’s Minnesota office is located in the Otsego area in the newly-developed Waterfront Commons III building.  

“We look forward to the challenge of building an extension of what has already been established in Chattanooga and Tampa up here in Minnesota,” said Johnson. “I’ve been on the customer side, asset side, and brokerage side of the freight business for over two decades. We can’t wait to get started.”

Trident Transport plans to hire 50 people for the remainder of 2019 in the Minneapolis office and will be attending various college and career fairs to attract potential employees.
