BlueGrace® Logistics History
Founded in 2009 by Bobby Harris, BlueGrace Logistics has quickly transformed from a small office of 8 employees to the nationwide leader in transportation management. Combining his 18 years of transportation experience and entrepreneurial spirit, Bobby discovered the opportunity to infuse technology within overly complex transportation processes. In fact, he has been frequently quoted calling BlueGrace a "Technology company in the freight business." The industry was hungry for a way to make transportation easier and BlueGrace was quick to deliver.
BlueGrace began partnering with small to medium sized businesses that lacked the capital to spend on proprietary technology and transportation solutions. By creating and utilizing BlueShip®, a web-based TMS (Transportation Management System ), BlueGrace enabled companies to implement a simple and streamlined process of consolidating all their shipping requirements into one resource. Adding this game-changing technology to a growing list of strong carrier partners, BlueGrace established itself as a leader in the industry.
Customers quickly realized the savings and benefits from partnering with a leader like BlueGrace. As customers grew, so did the number of BlueGrace Logistics’ employees. In 2010, BlueGrace outgrew its 2000 square-foot office in Apollo Beach, FL and moved its 35 employees to a brand new 12,000 square-foot facility in Riverview, FL. Today, BlueGrace has more than 299 employees with plans for even further expansion. The corporate office in Riverview holds the BlueGrace leadership Team, Sales, Marketing, Customer Service, Technology, Accounting and Finance, Specialized Services, HR and Recruiting, Franchise Support and Corporate Development teams. BlueGrace has satellite offices in Chicago, Baltimore and Salt Lake City as well as national franchise locations.
Bobby Harris and BlueGrace have not strayed from the original business strategy in 2009. BlueGrace continues to push the innovation envelope and creation of lasting value to their customers as a one-stop-shop for transportation management. BlueGrace offers services from Less than Truckload, Truckload, International, Air and Ocean Freight, Supply Chain Management, Expedited and Guaranteed, and BlueGrace Enterprise to name a few.
