Lineage Logistics is planning an expansion in East New Orleans, Louisiana! In order to make this possible, the company is investing $42 million toward the project. In addition, this will create somewhere around 50 new jobs. So this is great news for the citizens of Louisiana! It also just goes to show how Right to Work states create opportunities for businesses as well as workers.
From Area Development Magazine:
“The Lineage Logistics project at the Port of New Orleans is a boon for the City of New Orleans and our entire state. […] The value-added exports of Lineage Logistics will continue to strengthen Louisiana’s $1.6 billion poultry industry, including nearly 300 commercial broiler producers throughout 11 parishes. We welcome this significant new investment and its economic impact across Louisiana.” […]
“The benefit of this project cannot be overstated. […] Soybeans feed our poultry industry, and our poultry industry feeds the world.” […]
“Port NOLA is [happy] to see this project move forward. […] Poultry exports have traditionally been a strong segment of our cargo portfolio and, due to worldwide demand, we see poultry and other temperature-sensitive cargoes as critical to Port NOLA’s future.”AREA DEVELOPMENT MAGAZINE
