The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) announced today that US Elogistics Service Corp., a global logistics solutions company based in New Jersey, will open its first facility in the Southeast, investing $4 million and creating 150 new jobs in Austell.
“Georgia has established itself as an e-commerce fulfillment hub for companies from around the country looking to ship their products far and wide, and this announcement is symbolic of that,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “We are proud to welcome US Elogistics to the growing family of e-commerce businesses and distributors locating in the state, and I want to thank all of our economic development partners for making this possible.”
US Elogistics Service Corp. is seeking to ramp-up its operations in response to an increased demand for e-commerce goods in the market, as there has been a significant increase over the last few years of businesses looking to sell online. The new facility will include 101 loading docks, 36-foot clear heights, 134 surfacing parking spaces and 114 trailer spaces. US Elogistics is currently holding more than 2.5 million square feet of warehouse space and is constantly expanding further, offering e-commerce sellers of all shapes and sizes the perfect fulfillment platform. This new 500,000 square foot distribution center is set to open its doors in October.
“We are delighted to be opening up another facility in the U.S., expanding our domestic operations from the West and East Coast down to the Southeast,” said Yuriy Gutkin, director of business development for US Elogistics. “Metro Atlanta will be a strategic advantage for the firm, giving us the opportunity to be located closer to customers in the South.”
“We are excited to welcome US Elogistics to Cobb’s business community,” said Dana Johnson, executive vice president of economic development for the Cobb Chamber. “US Elogistics joins a growing logistics industry cluster investing in South Cobb.”
