Visit One of the Most Modern FedEx Express Hubs in the World

February 1, 2017

FedEx Express Hub

For the next installment of FedEx Operations around the world, we’re traveling to a city situated at the heart of Europe’s economy. The area within a radius of just 310 miles (500 kilometers) of this city generates over 40 percent of the entire gross domestic product of the European Union.

It has excellent transport links and infrastructure, including freeway and high-speed train connections to Western Europe’s major economic centers; three major airports nearby and the river Rhine at its doorstep, one of Europe’s most traveled water ways.

It’s the perfect location for one of the most modern, and eco-friendly, FedEx Express Hubs in the world.

This hub has a fully automated sorting system that can process nearly 18,000 packages an hour.

The roof features the largest FedEx Express solar power installation worldwide.  We’re talking an area over 19,000 square yards (16,000 square meters) producing about 800,000 kilowatt hours per year. That’s enough energy to power roughly 230 three-person households for an entire year.

This hub is a global powerhouse with team members from over 37 different countries.
