State-of-the-art facility to unlock new distribution routes and capabilities
PepsiCo Beverages North America (PBNA) has opened a state-of-the-art, custom built sales and distribution centre on the Southeast side of Indianapolis, US, spanning 18,580 m2 across nearly 25 acres. The new facility will enhance PBNA’s world-class service to customers in the region and beyond, featuring new innovations in technology and delivery systems that allow for new chilled, direct-to-store delivery.
The new technology will help unlock 150 new routes for delivery, and greatly reduce the overall carbon footprint of business operations in the market via mile reduction.
The US$14.5 million investment by Scannell Properties, will be leased by P-America LLC, a subsidiary of PepsiCo Beverages North America, for a period of 10 years. The new facility project has created 30 new jobs and retains 467 full time employees at PBNA facilities located in Indianapolis.
