A Michigan freight shipping brokerage company plans to create 201 jobs in Charlotte in the next three years, the N.C. Department of Commerce said today.
XPO Logistics picked Charlotte to establish its North American Operations Center, where it will house corporate functions like accounting, brokerage and finance. The jobs will pay an average wage of $56,606, which is above the Mecklenburg County average.
The state commerce department approved a $3.2 million financial incentive package for XPO if the company creates the jobs by 2014. XPO picked Charlotte over competing sites in Texas and South Carolina.
Formed in 1989, XPO is a third-party logistics services provider helps its clients arrange for ground, sea and air shipping.
