Chattanooga—known as the Scenic City due to its beauty and outdoor recreational scene—has grown to become a thriving new hub for startups and large companies alike. With a supportive ecosystem for businesses, Chattanooga has also established itself as the heart of “Freight Alley,” with an increasingly growing number of companies in the transportation and logistics industry due to its position as the epicenter of freight traffic in the Southeast.

Here’s what leaders are saying about Chattanooga.

“If you start a company there to serve the trucking industry, you have more expertise about what the needs are, and more customers and partners there in Chattanooga as opposed to New York City, Boston and San Francisco.”

— Steve Case, AOL Co-Founder and Co-Founder of Rise of the Rest
