Chattanooga: 80 more jobs for VW plant

A logistics company will provide vehicle processing and yard management services for Volkswagen's new Chattanooga assembly plant and create 80 jobs here, officials said today.

Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics, based in New Jersey, was awarded a contract to provide the services for the plant that's slated to start operation in the first half of 2011, said company spokeswoman Inna Getselis.

Such services typically involve installing floor mats and auto manuals in finished vehicles, she said. Also, the company's workers check car tire air levels and body shop work, the spokeswoman said.

She didn't immediately know when hiring will begin and couldn't identify the pay levels for the jobs.
