Axle Logistics, LLC to Expand Logistics Operations at Knoxville Headquarters

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Stuart C. McWhorter and Axle Logistics, LLC officials announced the company will invest $37.9 million to expand logistics operations at its Knoxville headquarters.

Axle Logistics will create 651 new jobs in Knox County over the next five years, nearly tripling its total headcount in Tennessee.

As part of the project, the company will construct an 85,000-square-foot facility adjacent to its existing operations on North Central Street. The additional space and staff will allow Axle Logistics to better meet the ongoing growth it has experienced since its founding in 2012.

Axle Logistics, LLC is a Tennessee-based, third-party logistics (3PL) company that serves an array of transportation customers across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Today, the company is headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee, with one satellite office in Chattanooga.
