Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Arrive Logistics officials announced last week that the company will expand its operations in Chattanooga.
“Arrive’s expansion is a direct result of the significant talent pool and experience in the logistics industry in Chattanooga,” says Charles Wood, Vice President of Economic Development at the Chattanooga Chamber of Commerce. “We’re proud of the entrepreneurs and innovators that helped build this industry and we were honored to work with Arrive on bringing this project to the region.”
The logistics company will invest approximately $3.6 million into the region and create 500 new jobs in Hamilton County.
Founded in 2014 and headquartered in Austin, Texas, Arrive Logistics is a technology-enabled, growth-focused freight brokerage who serves shipper and carrier partners to deliver first-class brokerage and transportation management services.
Arrive Logistics plans on expanding its Chattanooga location to keep up with the company’s continued steady growth due to the strong logistics industry presence in the Southeastern United States and in Chattanooga. With this expansion, Arrive Logistics will grow its footprint in Tennessee exponentially and will nearly double its total global employment.
“We congratulate Arrive Logistics on its decision to expand and create 500 new jobs in Hamilton County. This is one of our quickest expansions, with this decision coming just four months after Arrive Logistics chose to put an office in Hamilton County. We are proud of the workforce we are creating that can fill those jobs and appreciate Arrive Logistics and the career opportunities they will offer to our residents,” said Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger
“Chattanooga’s logistics sector is booming and I’m glad to see Arrive Logistics creating jobs amidst transportation industry growth and related innovations happening in Chattanooga,” said Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke
