LAFAYETTE, La. — Dupré Logistics has added Dallas and Buffalo, New York as the sites for new branch offices to expand its brokerage and 3PL groups.

“These branch openings and the selection of highly experienced professionals is the key to our larger strategy of serving our customers in an expanded intermediary and 3PL network.  Following each branch opening, and as our network expands, we will continue to invest in people, infrastructure, and technology to support our growth over the next 5 years,” Byrd said..
