Comprehensive Logistics will lay off employees in January, according to a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notice Act document filed with the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
The third-party logistics company, a division of Falcon Transport, specializes in automotive parts transportation and served the General Motors plant in Lordstown, Ohio. The automobile giant announced in October that it would suspend third shift at the plant, laying off 1,202 hourly employees and 43 salaried employees.
While Comprehensive Logistics didn’t tell the state government that its layoffs were connected to GM, both decisions are effective Jan. 23.
“The number of employees affected has not yet been determined as of this date, but as soon as we know the number, you will be notified. A list of the affected positions will be included once we have determined the number,” the Austintown-based company wrote.
Comprehensive Logistics didn’t return a call for comment.
