    • Share:
    Montgomery, Ala., June 29, 2022 – On Wednesday, June 29, FedEx Ground Package Systems, Inc. celebrated the $52 million expansion of its 250,000-square-foot distribution and logistics center in Montgomery, Alabama operations. Construction is underway with plans to open in 2023, the facility will employ approximately 150 people.

    Mayor Steven L. Reed said, “FedEx’s continued investment in Montgomery showcases our essential role in global logistics and solutions for major industries. We look forward to building on this longstanding partnership and creating new opportunities for growth, development and prosperity.”

    FedEx continues their long-standing relationship with their development partner, The Westmoreland Company, as they relocate the existing FedEx Ground facility located at 7910 Bill Joseph Parkway to 120 Folmar Parkway. The new state-of-the-art facility will be situated on 46 acres and handle more than twice the package volume of the existing facility. The site is located in the Montgomery Water and Sewer Boards’ Interstate Industrial Park and will also include a new access road that will connect Folmar Parkway to Wasden Road.

    County Commission Chair Doug Singleton said, “We are proud to welcome the expansion of FedEx’s distribution and logistics center in Montgomery County. The investment continues to build upon Montgomery’s reputation as the growing logistics hub of the Southeast.”

    Montgomery Chamber Board Chair Cedric Campbell said, “FedEx’s expansion is a result of a continued and deepened partnership and we are so thankful for this investment. Together, opportunities continue to abound for the River Region.”
