September 2021

ELITE’s success comes from the spirit and ingenuity of their people, and they are currently on the lookout for top talent in Chicago.

CHICAGO, IL – September 2021 – A new office has opened for the premier 3PL company ELITE Transit Solutions (ELITE) as a key part of its national expansion plan. Located in the newly refurbished 600 West Fulton building, ELITE’s Chicago team will join the supportive business community of Chicago’s Historic Fulton Market Neighborhood.

ELITE prioritizes a collaborative culture in a cool and modern environment. The rapidly developing Fulton Market district includes recreational facilities, a rich history, and excellent access to transportation. The 600 West Fulton building will provide similar amenities to the ELITE staff, including an employee lounge, bike room, and fitness center.

“Our company considered several metropolitan areas for our new Commercial Operations Center, but ultimately, we knew Chicago was the ideal location,” said Michael Johnson, CEO of ELITE. “The city’s legacy as an epicenter of transportation brokerage is the perfect fit. Our business – and our company – is exciting, fast-paced, and highly competitive, so we’re seeking enthusiastic candidates that thrive in this high-energy mindset that truly is a lifestyle.”

ELITE is focused on retaining top talent, and the company strategically selected Chicago for its diverse talent pool. ELITE is now hiring staff from entry to mid-sales, customer service, and operations in the Fulton Market office.

The company focuses on customer service and technology to provide transportation and logistics for clients who need to move a wide variety of raw materials and manufactured products. ELITE is grateful for their clients, who have afforded the company the opportunity to continue to expand their product offering and service support nationwide.

ELITE has been enjoying triple-digit growth in recent years. The 9,000 square foot space in the Fulton Market is one of four ELITE offices, with the others in Pittsburgh, Charlotte, and Phoenix. The Charlotte location serves as a sales satellite office, where two members of the company’s senior management team are also currently based.
