ROAR Logistics announced the opening of its 4th office, and first office located on the west coast.  Roar’s newest operation is located in Temecula, California and will offer customers the full spectrum of Rail, Ocean, Air, and Road logistics services that the company currently provides to its diverse base of local, national, and global clientele.

Heading up ROAR’s California operations will be Marc Sandoval, an 18-year veteran of the logistics industry.  “We are excited to have Marc on board as he brings with him a diverse background in the logistics industry,” said Bob Rich III, president of ROAR Logistics, Inc.  The addition of the operation in California will help extend the reach into Mexico and position ROAR in proximity to some of the most active ports in America, he said

ROAR began as an Intermodal Marketing Company moving freight via rail as an alternative to trucks.  “As manufacturers faced escalating gas prices, stricter government highway safety regulations and increased demands to protect the environment, our entry into the rail market was timely for us back in 2003,” said Rich.  “Manufacturers are constantly seeking the most efficient means for transporting products to market and intermodal transportation has become pivotal to the transportation industry, as it offers streamlined costs and important efficiencies to benefit businesses and the general public.”

2013 marks the 10th anniversary for Buffalo, NY-based ROAR Logistics, Inc.  Founded by Rich in 2003 as a subsidiary of Rich Products Corporation, ROAR has grown consistently, adding operations in Atlanta, GA and Peoria, IL.  ROAR began with 3 full-time associates and has grown to almost 50 associates nationwide.
