OGDEN, UT - England Logistics, one of the largest and most diverse third-party logistics (3PL) companies in the world, has chosen to establish a corporate office in Ogden that will create 90 new jobs in the community. The company provides non-asset based transportation solutions with headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah and company offices in four other states. Ogden was selected as an ideal location due to the company’s long-term partnership with Weber State University’s Professional Sales Program, in addition to Ogden’s thriving labor market and business community.
“We’re excited to welcome England Logistics into the growing network of companies that are making a home for themselves in Ogden’s business community,” said Tom Christopulos, Ogden City’s Community and Economic Development Director. “Our community has seen significant growth in professional and technical sales, thanks in large part to the nationally recognized sales program at Weber State University. England Logistics will have a significant impact in this growing sector.”
England Logistics will house their new office in the Lotus Kiesel building on the southwest corner of Kiesel Avenue and 24th Street, which has recently been renovated. This space will serve as an expansion of England Logistics’ account management team that services its fuel, factoring, tire and full truckload customers. When the office opens, 25 inside sales positions will be available with the potential to add another 65 in 2019 as other divisions and opportunities from the company are added over time. The company plans to open its new office in Ogden by the end of November.
“We are constantly looking for ways to expand the support our customers receive, increase the number of opportunities available for employees to grow their careers, and tap into quality talent to fill new and open positions,” stated Jason Beardall, president of England Logistics. “The expansion of our Ogden location supports these objectives as we continue to grow as a company.”
