ITS Logistics LLC, a third-party logistics company, announced plans today to locate new operations in Whitestown, Indiana. The project is expected to create up to 199 new jobs by the end of 2024 in Boone County.
The company will invest roughly $11.8 million to establish the company's first Midwest location at 4683 Albert S. White Drive. The new 350,000-square-foot facility, in combination with an existing 1 million square feet of West Coast distribution space, will allow the company to offer national omnichannel distribution and fulfillment services to nearly 90% of the U.S. population within a two-day turnaround period.
“When researching regions in the eastern United States to expand our business, central Indiana was the obvious choice for several reasons, the geographic distribution advantages, the overall quality of the workforce, the strong partnership with the IEDC, the fact that Indiana is an extremely business-friendly state and a place where we truly feel that we can grow our culture and one day provide employment for more than 500 ITS team members,” said Ryan Martin, president of ITS Logistics. “We’re greatly looking forward to the future of ITS in Indiana and see this location as an integral piece in our continued growth and national expansion.”
As an incentive, Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) offered ITS Logistics LLC up to $1.5 million in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The town of Whitestown is considering additional incentives.
"As the Crossroads of America, we are perfectly positioned to help companies reach customers across the Midwest, across the country and around the globe," said Governor Eric J. Holcomb. "We will continue to deliver on our commitment to cultivating a pro-growth business environment, so companies like ITS Logistics can continue driving their business forward in all corners of our state.”
Founded in 1999 in Reno, Nevada, ITS Logistics services include freight brokerage and asset lite transportation, dedicated and expedited transportation, omnichannel distribution, ecommerce fulfillment, drayage and intermodal, and complete transportation management solutions. The company has grown significantly in recent years, achieving nearly $500 million of revenue in 2020.
