Chicago-based Coyote Logistics, a UPS company, has opened its 58,000-square-foot office in The Assembly building in Detroit’s Corktown district. The Assembly is owned and operated by Bedrock Detroit, and Coyote now occupies the development’s second and third floors as one of the building’s largest tenants.
Coyote expects to add 200 to more than 500 employees in the next three years, with 100 expected to start in the new location in 2020. Their roles will focus primarily on customer service, sales, and business development. The company’s former hub, located in Ann Arbor, will close its doors this fall.
“Coyote understands that it’s our culture and the quality of our people that differentiate us in the marketplace,” says Jorge Diaz, chief people officer of Coyote. “As we continue to grow through the expansion of our tech solutions and service for our customers and carriers, continuing to attract and retain the talent capable of delivering both is more critical than ever.
“With its growing reputation as a hub for innovation and technology, Detroit offers the perfect blend of local talent and skillsets necessary to deliver the experience our customers need and expect from Coyote. We’re excited for our employees, current and future, to experience the new state-of-the-art office space, which has the capacity to grow with both the neighborhood and our company.”
The expansion aligns with the company’s global growth strategy. Coyote aims to create a better experience for shippers and carriers through a blend of technology and customer service.
