Logistics Company Relocates to Clayton Co.
Atlanta Aerotropolis Drawing Business Closer to the Airport
ATLANTA (June 4, 2015) – Third Party Logistics company, C.L. Services, Inc. has begun officially operating from its brand new headquarters located in the Atlanta Tradeport Zone near Hartsfield-Jackson Airport, International Terminal. No stranger to the area, C.L. Services, Inc. is excited to take part in the new initiate convened by the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) to build and expand business surrounding the world’s busiest airport.
“We specifically chose the Atlanta Tradeport Zone of the Aerotropolis due to ease of access as well as location. We feel that it will enable us to further develop our expedited, container, transload, and cross-docking operations “ said Jeff Lantz, President of C.L. Services, Inc. “With new business development on both the east and west ends of the airport, this area is the most opportune environment for growth, making it the perfect choice for relocation,” Lantz added. “The south side of Atlanta has for a long time been in need of a catalyst for economic growth and expansion. I believe the Atlanta Aerotroplis is just that. We are excited and extremely proud to be a part of this great initiative and can’t wait to see how it contributes to the progression of this area”
The area in which C.L. Services, Inc. has relocated, known as Atlanta Tradeport, falls within the Atlanta Aerotropolis trade area, and is already home to a number of international logistics and freight firms, customs houses, and airport-related businesses. “This special redevelopment district is one of the most incentivized areas in Georgia,” said Grant Wainscott, Clayton County’s Director of Economic Development. “Companies that locate or expand in this area are eligible for $4,000 per job tax credit through the state’s Opportunity Zone program, infrastructure assistance through a Tax Allocation District, and special financing credits through programs like New Market Tax Credits and EB-5 Foreign Investment.”
C.L. Services, Inc. joins a growing number of recent major announcements in Clayton County, including Kroger’s new $175 million distribution center at the former Fort Gillem, Chime Solutions’ 1,120 new call center jobs at Southlake Mall, and the US Headquarters for Korean LED firm AVICS. The Atlanta Tradeport has also seen important expansions from national and international companies, including the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).
“The whole point of incentives is to drive new jobs and investment to our community,” added Clayton County Commission Chairman Jeff Turner. “We are so pleased to see all the hard work paying off, and we couldn’t be happier to welcome C. L. Services, Inc. to Clayton County.”
