INDIANAPOLIS (Aug. 15, 2019) – Hoosier Logistics Inc. (Hoosier), a logistics and supply chain management provider, announced plans today to grow its operations in Indiana through multiple expansions, scaling its corporate office in Indianapolis and adding its first satellite office in Fort Wayne, more than doubling its Indiana workforce by adding up to 45 new jobs over the next few years.
“As the Crossroads of America and state with the most pass-through highways, Indiana is the prime location for logistics companies like Hoosier to flourish,” said Elaine Bedel, president of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). “As a state, we won’t stop delivering on our commitment to cultivating a pro-growth, business-friendly environment so job creators like Hoosier can continue driving their business forward in all corners of our state.”
Hoosier will invest more than $1.65 million to expand its Indiana footprint over the next five years. At its Indianapolis headquarters, the company will consolidate the corporate functions for all of its subsidiaries, including Midwest Transportation Solutions, an asset-based trucking company; and Midwest Transportation Leasing, which provides leasing and financing opportunities for operators to own their own equipment. Hoosier is currently in negotiations for spaces in Fort Wayne and downtown Indianapolis to upgrade its office locations and allow for future growth. The company’s first satellite office in Fort Wayne will be a full-service facility offering all of Hoosier’s transportation solutions with a focus on logistics operations. This new office will enable access to additional customers and employees in the northeastern part of the state, which is the 2nd largest metro area in Indiana.
