Trucking Company Driving Growth in Central Indiana

Renewable Transport Services Inc. (RTS), a freight shipping and trucking company, announced plans today to expand its Indianapolis operations. The company committed to creating up to 98 new jobs by the end of 2025 and has already hired five toward its goal.


"Indiana's central location, infrastructure investments and hardworking Hoosier workforce make our state the perfect stop for companies like Renewable Transport Services," said Jim Staton, SVP and chief business development officer for the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC). "It’s an exciting day as we celebrate the company's decision to fuel its growth in Indiana, and we're grateful for their commitment to increasing their footprint and creating more quality career opportunities for Hoosiers."

Indianapolis-based RTS will invest more than $20 million to upgrade and equip the company's current 100,000-square-foot facility at 2916 Bluff Road with property improvements, office renovations and additional trucks and trailers. This expansion will enable the company to launch a dedicated regional division, which will create better driving opportunities for the company's drivers and decrease required time on the road. A preferred carrier for multiple national customers, RTS will use the new location as a launching pad for additional growth. The company also plans to add a second location in northern Indiana within the next few years.

The IEDC offered Renewable Transport Services Inc. up to $1.3 million in conditional tax credits based on the company’s job creation plans. These tax credits are performance-based, meaning the company is eligible to claim incentives once Hoosiers are hired. The city of Indianapolis supports the project in partnership with Develop Indy.
