I'm sure they have their reasons for choosing Gwinnett County.

Us Southside folks are hardly crying over losing another warehouse. We already have a ton of them in the pipeline.

I also wouldn't complain if we became the logistics hub for the SE either. Cincinnati is the national hub, you should see what $2 billion gets you at the CVG airport. I've seen some photos & it's impressive, also most reports have starting pay in the low 20's with top at around $25/27 an hour.

How is Cincy THE national hub? The airport but few railheads and fulfillment centers are nearby. Alliance airport in Fort Worth will surpass as it is getting an Amazon Air facility plus its near BNSF HQs which has a direct rail line to the L.A./Long Beach seaport, the busiest in North America. FedEx and UPS already have hubs at Alliance.

Cincinati was a hub before Delta's merger with Northwest. After gaining Detroit and other more geographically spread out cities, Cincinati was demoted at least in Delta's route.

https://www.areadevelopment.com/logi...ed-74421.shtml

This site lists 4 types of logistic hubs, naming 10-15 cities in each category. It mentions Atlanta as one of the major air cargo and one of the major inland port hubs. Obviously Atlanta is not one of the port hubs and is not listed as one of the transportation/logistics hubs. Article doesn't try to rank the hubs, just listing the major ones in each category.

Article doesn't state its criteria, but it lists Atlanta #1 place to locate a distribution center.

1000 citizens working these jobs is much preferable to 1000 citizens unemployed.

Realistically, it would be 1000 citizens working these jobs along with a second job. Just saying.
