Omnitracs, a provider of fleet management solutions to transportation and logistics companies, will relocate its corporate headquarters from San Diego to Dallas.
The transition is scheduled to take place in early 2015 and will be supported by a grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund (TEF).
Omnitracs officials say expansion to Dallas will enable the company to capitalize on the region’s substantial transportation infrastructure and logistics expertise. The company will retain its locations in San Diego and Baltimore for continued market presence.
“Establishing Dallas as our new headquarters will further solidify our industry leadership position, allowing us to centralize operations and better serve our growing multi-national customer base,” said John Graham, CEO of Omnitracs. “As a major transportation hub with a technology-savvy workforce, we believe Dallas offers great advantages that align with our long-term business vision. Our new headquarters location places us closer to many of our fleet customers to ensure we can quickly and efficiently meet their evolving mobile technology needs.”
Omnitracs’ nearly 700 employees -- and its Roadnet, Sylectus and FleetRisk Advisors business units -- deliver software-as-a-service-based solutions to more than 3,800 private and for-hire fleet customers and 500,000 vehicles around the globe.
This news comes two weeks after Active Network announced it is relocating its headquarters from San Diego to Dallas as well, beginning now through 2015, also as a result of TEF money.
