FedEx Freight Expands CapacityFedEx Freight, Memphis, TN, a provider of less-than-truckload services and a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., expanded capacity at two regional facilities in the mid-Atlantic, opened a facility in Southern California and proceeded with plans to build a consolidation center near Sacramento, CA, by 2006.
The new 52,000-square-foot center in Gardena, CA, has 92 service doors on a 13-acre site, more than double the size of the former 40-door center. Nearly 150 employees work there.
The company will expand its presence in Northern California by constructing a 152-door facility on 51 acres in West Sacramento. The 115,000-square-foot center will replace the current 17-acre, 127-door complex. More than 450 employees are assigned to the current Sacramento center.
Mid-Atlantic facilities undergoing expansion include the Youngstown, OH, center, which increased from 102 to 154 doors and 52,000 to 75,000 square feet. The expanded center is on 30 acres.
The FedEx Freight consolidation center in Pocono Summit, PA, near Wilkes-Barre, PA, had 151 service doors, but now operates 196 doors with more than 77,000 square feet of dock and office space on a 52-acre complex. Also, a five-bay vehicle service garage with two fuel lanes is under construction and slated for completion this spring.
