FedEx Ground to Expand Its Missouri Operations

Share this article:
FedEx Ground broke ground yesterday for its new distribution and delivery facility in Overland, MO.


Scheduled to open in early 2003, the new Overland facility will provide pickup and delivery services to the St. Louis metropolitan area.


The company will consolidate its facilities in St. Louis and St. Charles, MO, which amount to a combined 92,500 square feet, and relocate them to the new 162,000-square-foot building in Overland.


"The Overland location will provide FedEx Ground with improved access to its service area, major highways and a large labor pool," said Rock Sherman, a managing director at FedEx Ground, Pittsburgh.


FedEx Ground began operations in the St. Louis area in 1985. In 1991, it expanded its local presence with the opening of its St. Charles facility.


The new facility is part of a three-year, $500 million expansion investment that will increase the capacity of FedEx Ground's network by 50 percent. Announced in January 1999, the plan includes the opening or expansion of more than 50 facilities, including the new Overland facility.
