Last year, the company coordinated 200,000 truckloads and brought in $700 million in revenue, according to company officials. Companywide, MegaCorp employs 567, with 375 in Wilmington.
“Supply-chain issues continue to complicate global commerce, and the answer rests in great businesses like MegaCorp that apply creative solutions, innovative partnerships and excellent management principles in addressing customer needs,” WBD CEO Scott Satterfield said in the release.
The new roles will include sales professionals, operations personnel, support staff and more, according to WBD. The average compensation would be $62,917, officials said.
“As the nation struggles with supply-chain challenges, MegaCorp – a homegrown New Hanover County business – is responding with innovative logistics solutions that enhance connections among products and customers,” New Hanover County Commissioners Chair Julia Olson-Boseman said in the release.
Wilmington Mayor Bill Saffo said the expansion validates the city's long-term efforts to create high-quality jobs. “Wilmington has the assets, infrastructure, and workforce that growing companies like MegaCorp need," Saffo said in the release.
"In supporting the expansion of an established local business, these new jobs create opportunities for existing residents to share in the benefits of our growing economy."
