JBS Carriers announces its new JBS Logistics Center opening June 6th, 2011, in Gainesville, Ga. The new office will expand the company’s capacity and add revenue by allowing it to work with outside carriers to transport products across the 48 contiguous U.S. states.

According to Director of Logistics Todd Gooch, opening the new office was a crucial step in making JBS Carriers even more competitive. “Adding the logistics division allows us to be more competitive in today’s transportation marketplace,” said Gooch. “As we continue to expand our service lines, this brings us one step closer to becoming a nationally recognized provider of transportation services.”

JBS Logistics will continue to contract with beef and pork producers from JBS and chicken producers from sister company Pilgrim’s, and it will now contract with outside shippers and manufacturers as well to match services, routes and products.

Logistics Manager Neil Satterfield will oversee the Gainesville operation, which will initially employ a staff of six. Gooch estimates that staff to double by the end of 2011.
