FedEx upgrades in south-west Germany

[ February 29, 2024   //   ]

FedEx Express has opened an expanded, modernized facility in Karlsruhe in south-west Germany close to the French border. At about 2,500sq m (27,000sq ft approx.), warehouse space is doubled and there is a truck loading ramp as well as 24 loading bays. Sorting is largely automated, reducing times by around a third and almost doubling sorting capacity. A height-adjustable and extendable conveyor belt also facilitates handling of consignments. Three new jobs were created as part of the expansion, and 20 team members now work at the site.
