In attempts to increase their market share in the Southeast, Fed-Ex has ramped up it’s efforts to compete with Atlanta based United Parcel Service, Inc by developing a 50 acre site in Norcross, GA. The plans include a nearly 215,000 square foot distribution center, aimed at expansion of it’s daily package volume capacity, and also to enhance it’s network service capabilities.

Fed-Ex Ground, based in the Pittsburgh area, is the business segment of Memphis based FedEx Corp. Plans are to develop this new site into a hub for Fed-Ex where they can employ several hundred with up to a million square foot of distribution warehouse space.
