New logistics center to bring 150 jobs to Detroit

A new logistics center will open in an industrial park on Detroit's east side, bringing 150 new jobs to an area with an unemployment rate that's among the city's highest, Mayor Mike Duggan and Matthew Moroun, the scion of the Ambassador Bridge Moroun family, said today.

Linc, part of the Moroun-owned Universal Truckload Services, plans to complete a more than 500,000-square-foot logistics center at the I-94 Industrial Park. The facility will be financed and built by the Moroun family's Crown Enterprises.

Linc, which serves auto industry original equipment manufacturers, said it will set aside at least 51% of the jobs at the center for Detroiters but will aim to have most of the jobs given to city residents. Duggan said Crown Enterprises also agreed that at least half of the construction workers hired to build the facility would be Detroiters.

Well i read this news somehere and i didnt know that the news about the logistics center industrial park is here also. It feels good to see that companies like Universal Truckload Services will establish a center like this in order to give and open a logistics job opportunities for people that needs to be employed especially people that have experience in logistics field.
