FedEx Ground Investing $55M to Build Norcross, Georgia, Distribution Center

FedEx Ground is investing $55 million to build a distribution facility in Norcross, Georgia. The company already has three distribution centers in the metro Atlanta area. FedEx expects to hire 240 employees to support the facility.

"Enhancing FedEx Ground's distribution capability in the Southeast is critical to increasing the size, speed, and efficiency of our network," said Robert E. Holcombe, vice president of the southern region for FedEx Ground. "This new facility is evidence of the Southeast region's increased presence in the distribution and logistics business, and the growing confidence of local shippers that we are their best choice for their ground shipping needs."

The new site will measure 215,000 square feet and will open in the fall of 2012. It will have the capacity to process 15,000 packages per hour and dispatch up to 75 delivery vehicles every day.

Norcross's proximity to major highways and other logistics and transportation hubs attracted FedEx to the site.
