FedEx Ground Plans Houston County, Alabama, Logistics Hub

FedEx Ground plans to open a $57 million logistics facility in Houston County, Alabama. The project is expected to create 200 jobs.

According to county officials, the 317,000-square-foot FedEx Ground facility will stand on a 70-acre site off Sam Houston Boulevard located in the Sam Houston Industrial Park in Dothan. Construction on the FedEx facility is expected to begin in December, with completion scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2022.

“Thanks to our central location in the Southeast, a robust infrastructure network and a motivated workforce, it looks like all roads are leading to Alabama,” said Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce.

Over the past year, the Alabama Department of Commerce and Alabama Department of Transportation have worked closely with the Wiregrass delegation, Houston County, City of Dothan, Industrial Development Board of the City of Dothan, and the Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce-Grow Dothan to support the project.

“This project is an excellent example of area cooperation as we worked with all the state, city and county entities to bring about this distribution project in the Dothan area,” Mayor Mark Saliba added.

Since 2020, Alabama locations have attracted a slew of distribution and logistics projects from companies responding to changing consumer demand, Alabama Department of Commerce officials noted. These projects involved nearly $550 million in new capital investment and the creation of at least 2,000 jobs in the state.
