Dupré Logistics has opened a new branch in the Sacramento CA area and named David Joiner as manager of the new office.
“The Sacramento area is one of the fastest growing markets in the country and is a great place for Dupré to work from to serve Northern California and other West Coast markets,” said Mike Weindel, vice-president of strategic capacity services at Dupré Logistics.
The new Dupré office is in Roseville, 20 miles east of Sacramento.
“We are also happy that David Joiner has joined the Dupré team,” Weindel said. “He brings a depth of knowledge to the company and is already doing great work for us in California.”
Joiner, who has 17 years’ experience working in the industry including 10 years with CH Robinson and most recently seven years with USA Truck, says Dupré Logistics’ vision for growth, especially in the next three to five years, motivated him to join the company.
“Part of that vision revolves around Western growth for Dupré,” Joiner said. “With California being the fifth biggest economy in the world, having a solid presence in the state is extremely important. With offices now in Northern and Southern California, Dupré is strategically positioned to make the vision a reality.”
In preparation for the office opening, Dupré hired three people in June and three more in July to work at the Sacramento site.
Dupré is an asset-based provider of logistics services that includes freight brokerage, intermodal and transportation management.
“We are large enough for critical mass to get the job done quickly, safely, and in a cost-effective way, but small enough where every customer is important to us,” said Weindel.
