Trident Transport, a freight broker and logistics provider, announced plans Wednesday to expand their Chattanooga location into the former Freightwaves space on Chestnut Street and add 75-100 jobs between its Chattanooga and Tampa locations.
Trident’s current space at 4457 and 1428 Chestnut St. will house the sales office and future employees while the new space directly across Main Street will be the new corporate office. The new space will also have a company gym with fitness classes and a nutrition bar “to encourage health and wellness among Trident employees,” according to the company.
“The success and growth of this company is completely because of our people,” said Carter Garrett, vice president of Trident Transport. “We’re known as one of the best places to work in Chattanooga, and we actively strive to keep that reputation simply by taking care of our employees. We’re excited for this continual growth and we’re prepared to keep that trend going.”
Trident also announced it will open multiple satellite branches – two per year – throughout the U.S.
Freightwaves recently moved out of their space at 1500 Chestnut St. and into the former World of Beer location at 412 Market St.
