The transportation industry in the United States is expected to see a boost in hiring after expansions by two major logistics companies were announced in Michigan and Kentucky.
The Chicago-based company Coyote Logistics LLC plans to establish a new location in Ann Arbor, investing more than $1 million in a move that's expected to create up to 125 jobs, according to CBS Detroit.
Providing transportation services across the nation, Coyote Logistics is expanding because of recent market growth. The location in Michigan was chosen over others in Texas, Colorado and California.
Additionally, Transport Logistics International, a transportation company that specializes in moving radioactive material will bring its operations to Ballard County in Kentucky. The company's expansion should add as many as 20 new jobs to the area's workforce, according to Area Development Online.
"Daher-TLI is a perfect fit for Kentucky and Ballard County, especially with all the logistical advantages that area offers, including the river and a strategic location within the country," said Kentucky governor Steve Beshear. "We are excited about the 20 new jobs and $2.2 million in investment TLI is bringing to the Commonwealth."
TLI specializes in cylinder transportation and provides services for moving radioactive material for both commercial and research purposes.
