Germany-based DHL Supply Chain is expanding its presence in central Indiana by adding an eighth distribution facility and up to 400 jobs. The contract logistics company will be opening a 980,000-square foot facility in Whiteland, off I-65 and Whiteland Road.
The shipping company acquired the building from Kansas City-based Jones Development, which is developing the Whiteland Exchange Business Park.
“Jones Development Company was the first developer to focus on a becoming part of the Whiteland, IN business community making it a major submarket in Johnson County,” said Avison Young Principal Sean McHale, which brokered the deal.
Avison Young says the business park offers 2.4 million-square-feet of space and represents an investment of $100 million.
DHL says it plans to begin operations in the Johnson County facility by September 2023. The company says it expects to expand its footprint in Indiana due to its location which can reach 80% of the U.S. and Canadian populations within a day’s drive.
