UK logistics company announces first US office in Dallas

UK-based 3PL Speedy Freight has announced further global expansion with the opening of their first office in the United States.

Continuing their period of rapid growth, the logistics company is launching its signature freight and fulfillment solutions in Dallas, Texas – chosen for its size, central US position and high level of commercial activity.

The Dallas office will cater to any and all 3PL requirements, including full truckloads, less-than truckloads, drayage, expedited shipping, and cross-border operations.

Whether a fledgling start-up seeking efficient supply chain management, or an international corporation looking to streamline their operations, Speedy Freight’s dedicated team is equipped to cater to specific freight and fulfillment requirements with their cutting edge in-house developed technology.

Where quality assurance and reliability are key, Speedy Freight has the expertise to ensure logistics plans are finely tuned, regardless of industry – covering everything from the requirements for fast-moving consumer goods and high volume trade shows, to time-sensitive healthcare commodities.

Speedy Freight offers inventory and supply chain management for businesses of all sizes, with user-friendly technology seamlessly integrating with online stores, ensuring hassle-free operation, and comprehensive stock management; as well as warehousing capacity and cross dock ability.

Speedy Freight’s US expansion follows their recent EU growth, with locations opening in Dublin and Spain in recent years.

The in-house developed transportation and warehousing management system is universal, handling job management by providing status updates and customer access via an online portal.  Through this, clients will have full visibility of quotes, active jobs and invoices in one place all whilst working in tandem with knowledgeable, local teams offering an excellent customer-centric service.” 

Leading their US sales division is Starr Bollefer, who joined as Vice President of Sales in March 2024. Bollefer has expressed excitement for the company’s US journey and emphasised their commitment to delivering exceptional service and value to American customers. 

John Munnelly, Chief Operating Officer at Speedy Freight said, “Expansion to the USA has always been a goal for the business, and thanks to our outstanding year on year growth, we feel now is the perfect time to open our first North American branch.

“The high level of commercial activity in and around Dallas-Fort Worth makes it the perfect location for Speedy Freight, and we’re confident our team will hit the ground running with their personalized logistics service offerings.”

Mike Smith, Chief Executive Officer at Speedy Freight said, “This is a massive milestone for Speedy Freight, and we see a huge opportunity in North America for future expansion.

Our franchising model is perfectly suited to the US business landscape, and we’re confident that this is just the first of many USA offices.”
