[ May 12, 2023   //   ]

Team Worldwide recently announced the opening of its new fully-operational freight forwarding branch based in Kansas City. In addition to its North American branches conveniently positioned coast to coast, Team Kansas City’s central location suggests extensive access to major markets across the country.
Strategically selecting Kansas City as a new branch location, Team Worldwide envisions an unlimited logistics potential to serve the market. With an increasing demand for streamlined shipping solutions, Kansas City’s proximity to the geographic center of the U.S. has cultivated Kansas City to emerge as a leading freight hub. Businesses can benefit from shorter transit times, efficient solutions customized to the business requirements, and most importantly, a local office to provide the personalized service customers rely on.
Kansas City also boasts an advanced and well-connected global transportation infrastructure, positioning our new branch to serve as a connector to major freight corridors. Sitting at the heart of four major U.S. interstate highways, served by five major rail lines, and armed with an expanding international airport, Kansas City is rapidly evolving into a regional leader. Team Kansas City is equipped to take on this competitive, logistics hotspot, and is thrilled to offer an arsenal of quality shipping solutions to the area.
“Our branch is made up of a group full of problem solvers and innovative solution providers,” said Dustin Knoche, co-owner of the Kansas City office. “We couldn’t be more excited to expand the Team Worldwide capabilities in our market.”
Both branch owners, J.R. Little and Knoche, have an extensive background in supply chain logistics. The two connected through a shared entrepreneurial vision to build their own business. This veteran-owned office represents 37 combined years serving the industry. Both attribute the majority of their success to each member of their team.
“We believe in good people and great autonomy,” said Knoche. “We implement an effective leadership style that allows them to creatively help us grow within our strategy.”
The branch expansion offers wide-base freight forwarding capabilities and poses an opportunity for large-scale growth in various verticals. Kansas City functions as a powerhouse, e-commerce hub distribution location, unlocking numerous possibilities for Team to further advance alongside the ever-evolving demand for fast and efficient deliveries.
