BlueGrace Logistics, a nationwide third-party logistics (3PL) provider, opened a new Chicago office on July 23 in the iconic Chicago Board of Trade Building, 141 W. Jackson Blvd.

The company is searching for experienced sales professionals and recent college graduates in Chicago.

“In opening their Chicago office, BlueGrace Logistics recognizes that they will have access to world-class talent,” said Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. “Chicago’s innovation and talent pipeline ensures that companies doing business in the city can benefit from our globally-connected, diversified economy.”

Applications are being accepted for 80 new employees who will be occupying the Chicago Board of Trade office over the next year, more than doubling BlueGrace’s workforce in the Chicago metropolitan area. The new sales professionals will support the nationwide operations for the company.

BlueGrace Logistics’ Itasca, Ill. office will remain open and currently has 65 employees.

“We’re excited to be downtown and bullish on Chicago because it’s a rich source of talent and resources,” said Bobby Harris, chief executive of BlueGrace Logistics. “Being in the Board of Trade gives us greater access to college grads who want to work and live in a vibrant city. Plus, as the nation’s logistics hotbed, Chicago has a deep pool of experienced tech and sales professionals to serve our customers and to fuel our growth, not just in the metro area, but nationwide.”

As a 3PL provider, BlueGrace Logistics says it has access to many different carriers, routes, and modes of transport at competitive prices.
