Department store Kohl's announced this week it will open a distribution center in a large warehouse near Indianapolis International Airport next year.

 

It'll be part of Indiana's most steadily growing logistics sector: The Department of Workforce Development predicts the state will add 5- to 6,000 warehousing jobs within the next decade.

 

For its part, Kohl's plans to hire 300 full-time and 600 part-time workers at the new warehouse in the All Points industrial park in Plainfield.

At nearly a million square feet, it's one of the largest warehouses in the Indianapolis area. It will be Kohl's 14th warehouse in the country, and fifth that only serves online customers.

Kohl's joins other large chains’ distribution warehouses in or near the Avon complex, including Wal-Mart, Amazon and Target.

 

Indiana's $10 billion logistics industry employs about a quarter-million Hoosiers.
