A fast-growing transportation management company based at CityNorth is expanding and planning to create 200 additional jobs in the next two years.
GlobalTranz occupies about 10,000 square feet of office space 5415 E. High St., in the mixed-used development north of Loop 101 and west of 56th Street in northeast Phoenix. The 9-year-old company is adding 7,500 square feet to its offices and expects the project to be completed by July.
“We are a brokerage firm. We are the middle man between customers who ship freight and the carrier who moves the freight,” said Michael Leto, executive vice president for business development. The weak economy has not stalled growth projections. “We did $79 million in revenue in 2010. We did $135 million in 2011 and we are probably going to do around $210 million this year,” Leto said.
“It allows customers to see multiple vendors with the same transaction and transit times at different service levels,” he said.
Leslie Himley, marketing director for CityNorth, said the GlobalTranz expansion is one of several CityNorth officials hope to announce soon.
“We are thrilled for GlobalTranz’s continued success and look forward to welcoming its new employees to our property,” she said.
Leto and his brother, Andrew, the CEO, started the company near 24th Avenue and the Interstate 17. It moved to northeast Phoenix four years ago to be closer to Loop 101.
“We feel that northeast Phoenix is newer and nicer and we felt like we could attract people from Tempe to come in. We just wanted to attract more of the recent college graduates from Tempe,” Leto said.
Most of the jobs available are entry-level positions such as sales, carrier procurement and customer-service representatives. But there are opportunities for those with more work experience as well.
