Transplace opened its new operations center in Rogers on Thursday. The new facility is 150,000 square feet and was designed with future growth in mind.
Transplace provides logistics technology and managed transportation services.
“For over 20 years, Transplace has made a commitment to Northwest Arkansas and our new center of excellence will infuse leading-edge logistics technology, as well as new job opportunities,” said Frank McGuigan, CEO. “Our proximity to iconic brands that are among the largest, most prolific shippers, enhances communications, streamlines multi-shipper collaborations and optimizes transportation budgets.”
The new facility extends Transplace’s investments in AI, machine learning and predictive analytics. Transplace will continue innovations to its transportation management system, SaaS application, Logistics Solutions Platform and other solutions to support shippers in Northwest Arkansas, across North America and Europe, according to a press release.
Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who attended the grand opening, called Northwest Arkansas a focal point for innovation, commerce and new business opportunities. “Transplace is an industry leader and longtime business partner in this community. We anticipate even more progress as they expand to include hundreds of future new hires.”
