Hebron facility closure means 300+ of layoffs

Posted at 6:17 PM, Mar 10, 2016

HEBRON, Ky. — More than 300 workers will lose their jobs later this year when logistics and e-commerce firm Innotrac L.P. shuts down its Northern Kentucky facility.

Innotrac filed notice with the Kentucky Career Center earlier this week, announcing the upcoming closure and layoffs at its fulfillment center on Litton Lane in Hebron.

Of the 338 total layoffs, 86 drivers and 96 packers will lose their jobs, beginning in early May. All layoffs will be complete by July 2, according to KCC records.

Innotrac specializes in fulfilling and shipping online shopping orders for e-commerce sites like Amazon. The announcement came almost simultaneously with the news that Amazon announced plans to launch its own air cargo network in Wilmington, Ohio.

Innotrac’s announcement did not indicate specifically any connection between the closing of its Hebron facility and Amazon’s plans.
