Gov. Nathan Deal recently announced that Hapag-Lloyd America, LLC, a multinational transportation company, will create 363 jobs and invest $5.5 million in an expansion of the Hapag-Lloyd Quality Service Center 5515 Spalding Drive in Peachtree Corners. New jobs will include positions in administration, technical support and customer service.

“As a leading international transportation company, Hapag-Lloyd America will strengthen its competitive edge by utilizing our deep talent pool and continuing to grow here in the top state for business,” said Governor Nathan Deal.

Hapag-Lloyd, which merged with United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) in May 2017, is one of the leading operators in the Transatlantic, Middle East, Latin America and Intra-America trades.
