XPO Logistics recently announced plans to team up with Trinity Health to build supply distribution centers in Fort Wayne, Ind., for the 21-state hospital system, according to an XPO press release.
Trinity’s deal with XPO gives the hospital system control over its supply chain. XPO will receive $26 million over 10 years to run the distribution center. According to The Wall Street Journal, hospital chains across the nation have begun taking over their supply chain rather than contracting it out to individual facilities.
The Fort Wayne facility is the first of four distribution centers planned for Trinity Health. Approximately 75 jobs are expected to be created in Indiana. Fort Wayne’s strategic location puts the facility two hours from Indianapolis and three hours from Chicago, Detroit, Columbus and Cincinnati.
