JNJ Logistics is a transportation provider founded in Memphis in 1992. Today, the company provides brokerage services, shuttling and just-in-time delivery services in 48 states.

JNJ Logistics operates a fleet of more than 450 trucks on the road serving customers such as FedEx, Amazon, UPS, Walmart, PepsiCo, Nestle, Frito Lay, Dillards, Bed Bath & Beyond, and McKesson.

The company has outgrown its current facility and is exploring options in the Mid-South region for relocation of its corporate headquarters, operations center, vehicle maintenance facility and on-site warehouse with cross-dock. This PILOT will help JNJ Logistics redevelop the Delta Square Shopping Center site that has been vacant for more than ten years. JNJ Logistics has proposed a major renovation of the site into a multi-functional complex, housing its large fleet of vehicles, 151 management, accounting and information technology employees, 36 maintenance and warehouse employees and more than 325 Memphis-based truck drivers.

EDGE Staff projects $35,595,269 in local total tax revenues to be received during the PILOT term and an estimated $5,855,123 benefit to JNJ Logistics.
