Private and public school transportation is a potential niche market operators may consider since it can drive business and brand growth.
WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Carey International Inc. said Aug. 5 it's moving its global headquarters from Washington, D.C. to a new building in Frederick, Md., about 49 miles northwest of the District.
The new headquarters will be at 7445 New Technology Way, in Frederick, and will consolidate Carey’s customer engagement center, executive offices, administrative and account services office, and information technology and innovation lab. The facility will also house the Carey International regional dispatch center for the eastern U.S. -- a state-of-the art hub that manages daily operations for the Carey and Embarque services in East Coast cities.
While significant investments in proprietary technology such as vehicle tracking, GPS route mapping, and two-way communication have allowed Carey International to move the bulk of its operational functions to the new headquarters, both Carey and Embarque services will maintain fully-staffed offices in the cities they serve. Local operations will focus on training and supporting chauffeurs, service standards, and client outreach.
“This move is a significant step for Carey International and great news for our clients”, said Gary Kessler, President and CEO of Carey International, in a press release. “Consolidating our mosaic of support, administrative, and executive functions into one building facilitates improved efficiency and productivity, while at the same time allowing the operations teams in each service area to provide greater focus in supporting the two most important aspects of our business, our valuable clients and the chauffeurs who serve them every day."
Carey International’s new headquarters features 50,000 square feet of modern workspace for about 300 employees, five multi-purpose conference spaces, three productivity lounges, a 150-person capacity dining room, and a fitness center. The property also has been outfitted with the latest in cutting-edge communication and energy infrastructure to serve Carey International’s significant technology systems.
“The new facility offers more physical space as we grow, as well as a custom-designed environment to accommodate our technology development initiatives," said Sally Snead, COO of Carey.
Carey International plans to start welcoming employees to the new facility by the end of 3Q 2016 and be fully relocated by December.
