2 e-commerce companies to close, 217 jobs lost



Indianapolis, Indiana – Two e-commerce companies, one in Indianapolis and the other just south of the capital, intend to lay off more than 200 workers in total.

This week, the Indiana Department of Workforce Development made notices from Kenco Logistics in Indianapolis and Pitney Bowes in Greenwood public.

Pitney Bowes’ Johnson County fulfillment center at 1415 Collins Road will close on March 23. That is to the northeast of the East Worthsville Road intersection with I-65. 107 jobs will be lost as a result of the shutdown.

Pitney Bowes stated in their notice that the closure was due to “changing business needs.” It happened after the business declared 300 layoffs for 2023.

In 2018, the business inaugurated its Greenwood location.

According to a Pitney Bowes statement:

“We have made the decision to consolidate our Fulfillment business into our Hebron, Kentucky site. As a result, we have provided approximately 85 employees and 15 temps in Greenwood with WARN notifications. In addition, our employees were provided severance and job search assistance. The Greenwood facility is currently listed on the market for sub-lease.”

In the meantime, Kenco Logistics intends to close its 202 S. Belmont Ave. location in Indianapolis. That is in the northwest of west Indianapolis, near the I-70 interchange for South Harding Street.

The facility will close on March 19 and 110 jobs will be lost, according to the notice given to the state. The shutdown has no stated cause. The business declared in 2022 that it would establish an online store in Jeffersonville, Indiana.

Kenco is a leading provider of third-party logistics services.
