Lexington strengthens leadership in Logistics
Longship, a third-party logistics provider, celebrated the opening of its new 29,000-plus square foot office in Hamburg. The new building represents a $4.3 million investment with a planned 155 new jobs. Longship’s leaders, including founder Kenny Ray Schomp, cut a ribbon at the company’s new 29,000-plus-square-foot office on Sir Barton Way. Relocated from its former operation on Newtown Pike, the larger office will accommodate additional staff to better serve the company’s growing customer base of transporters.
“With its prime location at the crossroads of two major interstates, Lexington has had a logistics advantage for quite some time,” Commerce Lexington’s Bob Quick said. “The opening of Longship’s new expanded facility will not only add great-paying jobs for families across our region, but will also further strengthen Central Kentucky as a leader in logistics innovation. The pandemic showed just how important it was to continue delivering goods across the country, and that need has only increased since last year. Congratulations to Longship on this expansion, and we appreciate its investment in the regional economy.”
