Headline : United States : BlueGrace Logistics Continues Chicago Growth Trajectory
Summary : BlueGrace Logistics, a technology-enabled logistics company that takes a progressive approach to transportation management, announced that it will add new jobs and nearly double its footprint in the Chicago Board of Trade (CBOT), 141 West Jackson Blvd, after opening its second metro area office last July.

BlueGrace is boosting its downtown presence from 8,000 sq. feet to 15,000 sq. feet and will grow its Chicago workforce from 40 employees to 150 when the Board of Trade expansion is complete. BlueGrace also has an office in northwest suburban Itasca, where 60 employees are based.

The companys prime Chicago Loop location matches perfectly with BlueGraces aggressive hiring approach aimed at attracting young sales professionals.

Chicago is rich with young, college-educated talent, and it is already an elite spot for professionals with deep expertise in the logistics industry, said Bobby Harris, CEO, BlueGrace Logistics. We couldnt be more pleased with our central business district location which has helped us attract candidates from a deep talent pool that is lured to the vast amenities, restaurants, and vibrant work and night life offerings in the heart of downtown, added Harris.

BlueGrace Logistics is experiencing significant growth and greater demands for its tech-enabled third-party logistics services. BlueGrace Logistics, a six-time member of the Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing companies, anticipates 70% year-over-year revenue growth in 2018.

BlueGrace hosted a Chicago Open House at the Board of Trade to celebrate its new home in the Windy City. CEO Harris led a ribbon-cutting ceremony that included 42nd Ward Alderman Brendan Reilly and Professor Hani Mahmassani, CEO of the Northwestern University Transportation Center (NUTC). Earlier this year, Harris joined the NUTCs Business Advisory Council.
