C.H. Robinson, a leading global third party logistics provider, moved its Chicago flagship operation into the new Lincoln Yards development in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. 

It is the first anchor tenant in the revitalization area. C.H. Robinson’s customer base in Chicago has increased by 25 percent in the last 5 years and Chicago is a critical logistics hub for the company. Employees’ first day in the new space is today. A celebratory ribbon-cutting event will take place on Oct. 3, 2018.

“We are the largest logistics employer in Chicago and we built this office with future growth in mind as we look forward to many more years in this great city,” said Pat Nolan, vice president North America at C.H. Robinson. “Chicago has always been a transportation hub for moving goods in the U.S., which is why C.H. Robinson has had continuous operations here for over 100 years.”

The new building at 1515 West Webster was constructed with C.H. Robinson employees in mind. They provided input to create a modern environment with features that are important to them including:

  • Highly collaborative open work spaces and conference rooms
  • Sit-stand desks
  • Expansive cafeteria and café
  • 5,000-square-foot roof terrace
  • More than double the size of the previous office–over 200,000 square feet
  • Space to host customer and carrier industry thought leadership events

C.H. Robinson has been accelerating commerce in Chicago since 1916, making it the city’s original logistics company.

“Chicago is an important location for us as an organization. We have more employees in Chicago–2,500 in eight offices–than any other global location,” said Mike Ryan, vice president of North American surface transportation at C.H. Robinson. “This office serves over 28,000 customers and manages over 1.6 million shipments annually through the world’s most powerful supply chain platform.”

C.H. Robinson is a Fortune 200 global company with more than 15,000 employees across 39 countries on five continents and $14.8 billion in total revenue. It helps more than 120,000 companies ship products with over 73,000 carriers and suppliers. C.H. Robinson is proud to move into this new space and looks forward to many more years of growth in the Chicago community.
