FedEx breaks ground on new distribution centre in Pennsylvania

WCN Editorial Team 9 Aug 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

FedEx subsidiary FedEx Ground has started construction on a $228M distribution centre in Northampton County in Pennsylvania.


The company has acquired a 253-acre site in Allen Township, Northampton County and is now building a 74,000sq m distribution centre and related structures as part of a new Mid-Atlantic hub.

Pennsylvania’s governor Tom Wolf said: “This project is a huge win for Pennsylvania. The FedEx Ground terminal will become the company’s largest warehouse and logistics hub among the 34 it operates nationwide.

“The fact that FedEx chose Pennsylvania over two other states to expand, is a testament not only to the commonwealth’s business-friendly atmosphere, but also our strong local workforce.”

The project will create 282 full-time jobs over the next three years and 398 permanent part-time jobs.

Furthermore, the firm is anticipated to retain 1,652 existing employees across the state. The development is scheduled to open in 2018.
