Commenting on the new facility, Scott Doleman, regional vice president, said: “The continued growth in the Phoenix market coupled with our expanded footprint with additional doors provides us the much-needed capacity to meet the growing demand,.”
The company said that facility is ideally position to serve the Phoenix market and has brought FedEx Freight’s door count to almost 26,000 this year.
“We’re talking about more than adding buildings or square footage,” said Lance Moll, FedEx Freight President and CEO. “This is about strategically planning capacity increases to better serve our customers in growing markets.”
Moll added: “We will continue to invest in our network that provides the fastest published transit times in the industry. We have several projects underway to modernise and selectively expand centres to increase capacity over the next several years. We are confident our customers will benefit from these projects in the long run.”
