City of Hermitage Announces FedEx Ground Distribution Center Project

Tam O Shanter Driving Range

The City of Hermitage is pleased to announce that the City has received a land development plan that includes a 250,000 sq. ft. distribution center facility to be constructed on a 65 acre site at 2978 South Hermitage Road. The site consists of the current Tam O’ Shanter golf driving range and two other parcels that are being consolidated into one parcel for development. The project developer is Scannell Properties, Indianapolis, Indiana. The plan will be reviewed by the Hermitage Planning Commission at their April 4, 2022, meeting.

FedEx Ground has released the following:

“FedEx Ground has entered into a lease agreement on a new, 250,000 square-foot distribution center on Hermitage Road in Hermitage that is expected to be operational in 2023. The new facility will employ a mix of full and part-time team members. The company also will contract for package pickup and delivery services with service provider businesses that hire locally for driver, helper, manager and other positions. We continue to experience significant package volume due to e-commerce growth and are optimizing the capacity of our network to meet growing demand for our services. The site was chosen because of its ease of access to major highways, proximity to customers’ distribution centers and a strong local community workforce for recruiting employees.”

Additional questions for FedEx Ground can be directed to David Westrick in FedEx Ground media relations at david.westrick@fedex.com.  

Gary Hinkson, City Manager, stated that the City has been working with Scannell Properties for the past year on this project. He complimented them and their development team for their professionalism and responsiveness. “We are excited about this announcement. It is great news for the City of Hermitage and the region, and we want to welcome FedEx Ground to Hermitage and thank them for this significant investment in our community.”
