FedEx Ground, the small-package ground delivery unit of FedEx, this week opened a distribution facility in Medley, Fla.
The 217,015 square-foot operation replaces one half its size at a cost of about $59 million. FedEx expects to process as many as 15,000 packages per hour and to employ more than 340 people permanently with approximately 50 temporary positions for the holiday season.
“Our new Miami facility is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to increase size, speed and efficiency of our network,” said Bob Holcombe, vice president of the southern division of FedEx Ground. “For shippers, the benefit is faster and more efficient movement of their packages through the FedEx Ground network.”
