Press Release: BAT Expands Team, Moves Into Larger Headquarters


COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa- Recently, BAT Logistics, one of the fastest growing 3PL providers of transportation services, added seven new people to its team and moved to a larger headquarters to accommodate company’s growth. In addition, a National Accounts team was added, and a Military Accounts team is forming.

BAT hired Maureen Shea and Joel Staley to the East Region Dispatch team, Marissa Rodriguez and Lacey Carlson to the West Region Dispatch team, Joe Kier to the National Accounts team and Ralph Blanks,Donnie Craig and Krysten Parrish to the Central Region Dispatch team.

“Our old office was at 95 percent capacity, which only took us three and a half years to hit,” said Jarrod Marinello, co-owner and executive vice president of BAT Logistics. “We had planned for it to take us five years, so this is a good thing.”

The new space, at 20 Arena Way, Suite 2, is 5600 square feet and holds 50 people. It is double the size of the previous office. BAT moved to the new location in late August.

“Everyone loves the new location,” Marinello said. “Our old office was in Papillion, Neb. in more of a suburban area, while the new office is right off a major interstate right inside Council Bluffs.”

The new National Accounts team is managed by Ashley Jankowski, who formerly worked on the East Region team. Military freight has been a big growth area for BAT over the last quarter, and the team to handle Military Accounts is lead by Liz Staley, BAT’s operations manager.

Each region’s team increased its personnel to stay ahead of demand. BAT has had a record percent growth this year.
