Transportation and logistics companies defied a usual postholiday slowdown by hiring in big numbers last month, including a strong expansion in payrolls at warehouse and parcel operations.
Warehousing and storage employment rose by 15,100 jobs from December to January, while the parcel sector reversed a decline in December by adding 6,800 jobs last month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Friday. The sectors were part of a national hiring surge that saw overall U.S. payrolls grow by 304,000 jobs.
