XPO Logistics establishes Fort Wayne distribution center, delivers 75 jobs
FORT WAYNE, Ind. — XPO Logistics, a top 10 global provider of supply chain solutions, and Trinity Health, one of the nation’s largest not-for-profit health systems, announced plans to establish a state-of-the-art regional distribution center in Fort Wayne, creating up to 75 new jobs by 2018.
“Indiana has worked diligently to create a business-friendly climate by cutting taxes and reducing regulations,” said Gov. Mike Pence. “We’re proudly known as the Crossroads of America, and with the logistics industry expected to more than double by 2035, we’re making unprecedented investments in our infrastructure statewide to ensure that global companies like XPO Logistics continue to choose Indiana for growth and job creation.”
XPO Logistics will manage and operate the $26 million facility as Trinity Health’s contract logistics manager. Located at Bluffton Road and McFadden Way, the facility will serve as the regional distribution hub for medical and surgical supplies for Trinity Health hospitals. Conlan Construction will serve as the general contractor with construction expected to begin this spring and be completed within a year.
