Simple Logistics Solutions (SiLo) officials, along with Gov. Bill Lee and and Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe announced in a press release Wednesday that the company will establish new operations in Nashville.
SiLo will create 92 new jobs and invest nearly $712,000 in its headquarters operations at 414 Union St. in Nashville.
SiLo, a new, full truckload freight brokerage, concentrates in specialized, oversized open deck truck shipments. The company works with both shippers and carriers to arrange the safe transport of goods and services across the United States and Canada.
“On behalf of the entire SiLo team, we are proud to establish our corporate citizenship here in Nashville,” said SiLO Vice President Luke Hilko in a prepared statement. “We’re excited and ready to grow through diverse local talent from the rich university presence and the solid transportation industry players the state of Tennessee has to offer. Our recent investment in our downtown Nashville office space has positioned us with a reliable location to bring in both experienced and entry level professionals that will support our continued growth. A sincere thanks to Governor Lee and his team who have supported us from the start.”
Rolfe noted the industry’s growth and presence in Tennessee.
“Tennessee’s transportation and logistics industry continues to gain momentum with more than 227,000 Tennesseans employed in this sector,” Rolfe said. “We appreciate SiLo for choosing to establish its headquarters in Nashville, adding to the robust business landscape of Middle Tennessee.”
Lee touted the announcement as further indication of Nashville’s desirability as a destination for businesses.
“We’re proud to welcome SiLo to Tennessee and thank the company for investing and creating new jobs in our state,” he said. “Nashville continues to attract top headquarters from around the country, and these new jobs will strengthen our transportation and logistics industry.”
