In a statement, Gov. Nathan Deal praised the news about Coyote as an indication of the state’s strength in moving, managing and storing goods, many of the products coming from – or heading – overseas through the state’s ports.
“Georgia continues to gain momentum in attracting logistics companies seeking unparalleled access to the southeastern market,” he said.
In a statement Thursday, Coyote officials said they provide services "to more than 14,000 shippers of various sizes and industries."
UPS, a massive delivery and logistics company, acquired Coyote two years ago, officials said.
