“We do things our competitors won’t. That’s because we take an entirely new approach to meeting the needs of start-ups and brands who can’t satisfy minimum requirements of large shippers,” said Dave DiCosola, co-founder, PackDash, in a statement. “Tucson is a great location for our West-coast customers and offers unbeatable connections to Mexico and China through the Port of Tucson. In terms of a headquarters, it’s been a dream of ours to ‘land and expand’ in Tucson, and to mold and shape its future with our team of tech-focused entrepreneurs.”
Sun Corridor Inc., Arizona Commerce Authority, Pima County, the City of Tucson and the Tucson Metro Chamber helped draw the company to town.
“Southern Arizona continues to attract industry leaders as well as new market disruptors like PackDash seeking the ideal location for their next phase of growth,” said Joe Snell, president & CEO, Sun Corridor Inc., in a statment. “Ecommerce and logistics are exploding across the country, and Tucson is emerging as a top location of choice.”
