Dupré Logistics has added Dallas TX and Buffalo NY to its list of branch offices as part of a continuing expansion of the brokerage and 3PL groups. Five new managers have been appointed as part of this expansion.

The Buffalo branch is strategically placed on the East Coast as part of the company’s regional expansion. The Buffalo branch manager Peter Szymanski has been serving the markets up and down the eastern corridor since December 4.
