FedEx Express Opens New Ground Operations Centre In Vitoria
FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company and a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), has opened a new ground operations centre in Vitoria. Its size, capacity and strategic location means the facility will process both FedEx and TNT domestic and international shipments, serving as a gateway between the Vitoria region and Europe.
The new facility has a floor area of 2,000 square meters and is located in Jundiz, Vitoria’s key industrial district and one of Spain’s top industrial areas. It is strategically located close to key international and local transportation infrastructure, as well as many FedEx Express and TNT customers.
“We are very proud to open our new facility in Vitoria, which gives us the scale, intra-European connectivity and the latest technology to deliver outstanding service to FedEx Express and TNT customers in the region and abroad,” said Paloma Romero-Salazar, vice president, Ground Operations, FedEx Express Spain and Portugal. She added, “This new centre also reflects our commitment to economic growth and development in the Basque Country and across Spain.”
Spain is an important market for FedEx Express as the business continues to expand across Europe. FedEx Express has a total of 35 stations and is present in more than 25 cities throughout Spain. Over 60 team members are employed in the Vitoria area.
FedEx Express is building Europe’s premier logistics business. Its acquisition of TNT means it now has a combined workforce in Europe of nearly 50,000 people moving just over 2.2 million packages per day between its domestic and international businesses.
