France-based supply chain giant Geodis has completed its acquisition of Brentwood-based Ozburn-Hessey Logistics. Adding OHL gives Geodis 120 distribution centers in North America with over 36 million square feet of flexible warehouse space that generate $1.3 billion in annual revenues. Combined, the companies have almost $9 billion in sales. OHL CEO Randy Curran will join Geodis' executive committee.
Logistics giant FedEx has picked a 64-acre site south of Interstate 40 in Mt. Juliet as the site for a new distribution center that will employ hundreds. Developer Tim Elam will go before city planners tonight to get final approval for the project, which will span 303,000 square feet and be surrounded by 769 parking spots.
Ingram Publisher Services has been tapped by New York-based e-book publisher RosettaBooks to handle the sales, print-on-demand and distribution for the latter's first foray into hard copies. The companies' first project for 13-year-old RosettaBooks will be a work by former Pepsi and Apple CEO John Sculley.
