Indiana Rail Road, Venture Logistics to open warehouse in Indianapolis
The Indiana Rail Road Co. (INRD) and Venture Logistics officials will formally open a new rail-to-truck warehouse in Indianapolis on Wednesday.
The new 406,000-square-foot Venture Rail Warehouse and Distribution Center is located on West Hanna Avenue on Indianapolis' south side, adjacent to INRD's mainline and a mile from the intersection of South Harding Street and Interstate 465.
The facility represents the first "mega-warehouse" with rail access to be constructed in Marion County in years, INRD officials said in a press release.
The warehouse features an indoor rail siding, a 32-foot clear ceiling, an 8-inch concrete floor, 58 truck dock doors, and food-grade capability.
Indianapolis-based Venture Logistics operates a fleet of 1,000 semi-tractors and 2,500 trailers.
