Dallas Cowboys get a taste of life with FedEx Express Logistics
- by admin
DALLAS (AP) FedEx Express is moving a cargo container to its new headquarters in suburban Dallas that will soon replace its aging FedEx Express Express Logistic Express container hub in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
The move is expected to bring FedEx Express a big boost in profitability in a market that is struggling to recover from the severe disruption caused by Hurricane Harvey, which hit Texas on Aug. 25.
The new FedEx Express logistics hub is expected be operational in early 2019.
FedEx said Tuesday it will open the new logistics center in late 2019.
The relocation is expected in part because FedEx Express has recently moved to new logistics hubs in Houston, Houston-Galveston, San Antonio and Tampa.
Fedex Express has not announced a new headquarters for the new FedEx Freightliner logistics hub.
The company has also been making rapid changes in its operations in recent years, moving from freight delivery to online shipping, from mail-order business to digital delivery and now to logistics.
The company has been growing its U.S. shipping fleet by about 40% since 2020.
FedEX has also spent billions on expanding its shipping and logistics business, but the expansion has been slowed by the recession and the disruption caused during Hurricane Harvey.
The industry has been trying to make some progress, but it is still struggling to find a path to profitability.
The new FedEx logistics hub in suburban Denton will replace FedEx Express, the largest U.K.-based container logistics company.
The Dallas-based company operates its own logistics hub at its new Houston-Dallas facility, but has struggled to get customers to pay more for its services.
