One of the Charlotte region’s largest companies is moving HQ to Atlanta

HICKORY, N.C. — A global logistics provider headquartered in North Carolina is moving its home base to the Atlanta area after several years of rapid expansion in Georgia’s largest metro.

Hickory-based Transportation Insight, one of the largest private companies in the greater Charlotte region, set the stage for relocation to Dunwoody, Georgia — just north of Atlanta — with a series of acquisitions before the pandemic. It bought multiple companies in Atlanta’s booming logistics sector, including Spend Management Experts, Platinum Circle Technologies and Nolan Transportation Group.

Transportation Insight just inked a 174,400-square-foot lease on the third and fourth floors of a new Dunwoody project called Campus 244. The third-party logistics provider is expected to move its existing area workforce of 1,200 into the project by late next year. It could add another 300 employees in Dunwoody, said CEO Ken Beyer.
