FedEx Express expands in Germany


FedEx Express has expanded its Stuttgart Air Gateway air cargo facility and commissioned a new sorter at the site. The new setup improves handling speed and capacity, helping to meet export and import demand from customers in the region. In addition to more than tripling sorting capacity, the facility offers an almost fivefold increase in capacity for X-raying airfreight shipments, said FedEx. The warehouse, which has been expanded from 800 sq m to 3,000 sq m, also enables better handling of freight and dangerous goods.

We have invested to offer our customers in the region even more service and opportunities. FedEx Express is a strong partner and supports large, medium-sized and smaller companies to grow their business,” said Stefan Dries, FedEx Express vice president ground operations Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
