FedEx opens new ground facility in east Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky.(WDRB) -- A new state-of-the-art facility is bringing hundreds of jobs to Louisville.

It's a 300,000 square-foot distribution center called "FedEx Ground," and it's the first one in Louisville.

The facility will serve as a small-package ground delivery unit.

It opened with about 300 employees.

The center will process more than 15,000 packages an hour.

Officials said FedEx Ground has become the crown jewel of the company's network.

FedEx has opened 11 new hubs and has expanded 500 other facilities around the country since 2005.

The company plans to add more positions to its new Louisville facility as demand for the service grows.
