New FedEx Ground distribution centre planned for Baltimore

As reported by Post & Parcel:

FedEx Ground plans to establish a new 300,000-square-foot distribution facility in Baltimore.

The new facility, which is scheduled to open in August 2017, will be located at the Tradepoint Atlantic global logistics centre at Sparrows Point.

The new distribution facility will join two existing FedEx Ground stations in the Baltimore area, which are located in White Marsh and Halethorpe.

The FedEx Ground facility is being built on 50 acres of ground leased to developer Scannell Properties, which is developing the distribution centre for FedEx.

In a statement issued by Tradepoint Atlantic yesterday (20 January),  Kevin Koken, vice president of Eastern region operations for FedEx Ground, commented: “This new facility will help us meet the increasing demand for our services, which is largely fueled by the surge in e-commerce – not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year.”
