NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) - A logistics company specializing in freight and terminal operations announced plans Friday to establish operations in Charleston County, bringing 85 jobs to the area.
Montreal, Canada-based Ray-Mont Logistics will invest more than $16 million in a new facility to be located on Remount Road in North Charleston.
