Jeffrey Tucker, CEO of Tucker Company, Cherry Hill, N.J., has announced that the company has opened branch offices in Boston and Albany.

The Boston office, headed by Hugh McLaughlin, vice president-sales, enables Tucker to increase its already strong presence in the Northeast. ‘New England is a strong market for freight, especially in the industry categories that we specialize in, including technology, chemicals, healthcare and pharmaceuticals,’ stated Jeffrey Tucker. ‘It also brings us physically closer to the many carriers we work with in the region.’

The Albany office, headed by Rossie Knight, senior customer service coordinator, is the company’s first off-site, customer service only office. The central New York location provides valuable support for Tucker’s Dedicated Logistics Division as a full service and fully integrated office.

In addition to the opening of the two new branch offices, the company recently launched a new Consulting Division and completed a fifty percent expansion of its headquarters office in Cherry Hill. ‘This has been a strong year for our company during these challenging times in the transportation industry,’ Jeffrey Tucker said. ‘In addition to our growth, we are making very good progress with our ISO 9001 training and anticipate achieving certification by mid 2008.’

Tucker Company was established in 1961. The firm provides a complete range of logistics services for commercial shippers throughout North America, including freight transportation management for truckload and less-than-truckload freight, intermodal, expedited, and air freight. The firm’s website is:
