Indiana’s enviable network of interstate highways and its central location have made logistics one of the most prominent industries in the state. Distribution operations also do very well here in the “Crossroads of America” and in the I-74 Corridor’s 80 Miles of Opportunity.
With such close proximity to the FedEx hub in Indianapolis, DHL in Cincinnati, and UPS in Louisville, businesses located anywhere along the I-74 Corridor can have their shipments to expedited carriers in less than three hours. Nearby rail service and air cargo facilities also offer additional options for getting raw materials in and finished products out to markets fast.
More than a third of U.S. consumer markets are located within a day’s drive. The CSX mainline runs parallel to I-74 connecting businesses here to deep water ports on the east coast, expanding that reach to the rest of the world.
With a number of industrial parks – some with shovel-ready sites – thousands of available acres and more than 50 existing structures, the I-74 Business Corridor has plenty of room for distribution operations of any size. Finding the workers they need won’t be a problem with a workforce of more than three million within a 90-minute drive.
Ivy Tech’s campuses in Lawrenceburg and Batesville offer certificate and Associate degree programs in Supply Chain Management and Logistics and a training program for truck drivers: logistics and distribution operations will find no shortage of well-qualified workers here.
