A logistics company based in Washington state is opening a warehouse in Robertson County, creating 22 new jobs, according to the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.
Commissioner Bill Hagerty and ProPack officials announced Monday the company's plans to open its first facility in the southeast on Highway 76 in White House, TN.
"As one of the country's premier transportation and logistics hubs, Tennessee allows companies to move goods quicker and easier to locations around the world," Hagerty said in a news release. "I appreciate ProPack recognizing of the value of a centrally located base in Tennessee, and I welcome the company to our state."
ProPack is a third-party logistics company that specializes in order fulfillment and freight forwarding services.
The company said they chose to open a facility in Tennessee in part "due to its central location and ease of access to many of the major markets."
The 100,000 square-foot warehouse is temperature controlled and can hold up to 3,000 location managed pallets with a total potential of up to 6,000 pallets.
The 22 new jobs include logistics/warehouse and management positions.
