Dallas Business Journal

US Courier & Logistics on Friday opened four full-service branches in Waco, Corpus Christi, the Rio Grande Valley and East Texas, expanding the company's coverage to new areas of the state.

With the new branches, the company has added another 10 percent of the state’s population to its total courier and delivery services coverage area, which now reaches 85 percent of the state’s population.

The cost to open all four branches was about $250,000, said the company, which has hired 28 new employees.

John DiTucci, vice president of US Courier & Logistics Operations, said he suspects the logistics industry is close to a turning point in the down economy.

“We have positioned ourselves to weather the slowdown and are now poised to handle the imminent recovery,” said DiTucci. “We at US Courier & Logistics are encouraged with our recent business growth and the opportunities which have prompted expansion into these new markets. We are very optimistic about the rebound in the Texas economy and continue to plan for the long-term growth and future of the company.”
