A local Dallas area company DAS has direct relationships with human resources departments both locally in North Texas and throughout the U.S.  So what is the business service that DAS brings to major Fortune 500 companies? When people relocate to a new city or region they move their furniture and they also have personal vehicles that might need to be transported to the city to which their relocating.

That’s where DAS comes in.  When companies move employees they use a third-party relocation provider and DAS ships about 4,000 cars a year into Texas currently.  Texas is one of their best relo states as residents move out of the North and Rust Belt region plus many companies from the Golden State of California are moving to Texas as the cost of doing business is much lower in Texas compared to California . Overall DAS is one of the bigger relo car transporters as they will transport more than 102,000 cars this year.

TAKEAWAY:  Texas with its business friendly environment of lower taxes and employee’s cost of living is a hot bed for new companies moving their corporate headquarters to the Lone Star state, especially the DFW Metroplex
