The World Trade Center New Orleans announced last week that Jack C. Jensen Jr., founder of TCI Trucking and Warehousing, is the recipient of the 2023 C. Alvin Bertel Award, reports Biz New Orleans.
Presented annually since 1967, the award recognizes an individual who has made significant contributions to the Louisiana port community. Over the past four decades, Jenson has built TCI into the largest independent trucking and warehousing company in the New Orleans region.
