TOC Logistics International, a global logistics management organization, will expand its Indiana-based headquarters, creating up to 87 new jobs in Indianapolis by the end of 2023. The company, which develops custom solutions that result in efficient global supply chains for a variety of industries, is investing more than $1.8 million to expand its Indianapolis headquarters to meet demand from its growing client base. The new space will include high-tech conference technology, new furniture, updated work stations and a variety of amenities.
“We are proud to be headquartered in Indianapolis and we look forward to expanding our footprint and adding many new, eager team members,” said Gary Cardenas, president of TOC Logistics. “We have always been a client-focused company, and because of that we want to ensure that our team can properly support all client needs and continue to exceed expectations.”
TOC Logistics employs nearly 80 associates across the United States, including 57 at its Indianapolis base. The company plans to hire at its headquarters to support its rapid operational growth across the country.
The Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered TOC Logistics International up to $940,000 in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These incentives are performance-based, meaning until Hoosiers are hired, the company is not eligible to claim incentives. The city of Indianapolis supports the project at the request of DevelopIndy.
“As the Crossroads of America, our state is a hub for logistics and transportation, supporting an industry with 20 percent more jobs than the national average,” said Elaine Bedel, IEDC president. “Indiana is well positioned to support companies like TOC Logistics that serve clients across the country, and our pro-growth business climate ensures that they can expand and create new Hoosier jobs with confidence.”
Created in 2005, TOC Logistics began as a department focused on international supply chain solutions. In 2010, the company was incorporated with the intent of growing the global supply chain business, and in September of 2011, the department was purchased for operation as its own entity. Cardenas launched TOC Logistics as a new option in global value chain solutions, focusing on offering innovative services to help manufacturers reduce costs, improve transit times and gain improvements.
TOC Logistics is certified as a Non-Vessel Operating Common Carrier, an Independent Air Carrier and is a licensed IATA agent for all major airlines. The company utilizes C-TPAT and ISO 9001:2015 certifications to stay relevant and assure quality within its services.
“Indianapolis is the ideal location to build a product, test the market, and ship it to the world,” said Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett. “Advances in technology and innovation from companies like TOC Logistics play a major role in our status as a global player for this important industry sector. I look forward to TOC’s continued success with a larger presence in the Crossroads of America.”
