"We are proud to expand Ryder's world-class Spring Hill logistics operation in support of our growing business in this market," Steve Sensing, president of the global supply chain solutions for Ryder, said in a statement today. "We've served customers in Spring Hill for decades. The area is flush with talent enabling us to meet our customers' logistics needs."
Founded in 1933, Ryder operates behind the scenes, managing critical transportation and logistics functions for more than 50,000 customers.
"Tennessee's central geographic location and incredible logistics infrastructure offer companies around the world a great setting for growth and success," Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam said in an announcement today of the expansion by the Department of Economic and Community Development. "Our goal to make Tennessee the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high quality jobs is made possible with the support of companies like Ryder, and we want to thank them for choosing to expand in Spring Hill and adding more than 600 new jobs to the Maury County workforce."
