MEMPHIS, Tenn., Oct. 7, 2014 — FedEx Freight, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), officially celebrated the opening of a new service center in Otay Mesa, Calif., today with a ceremony and luncheon for customers, guests and employees.
The new facility, located just off Interstate 905, allows FedEx Freight to enhance its LTL (less-than-truckload) services in the San Diego market. The center handles both FedEx Freight® Priority and FedEx Freight® Economy shipments for the local area, including cross-border LTL shipments traveling to and from Tijuana, Mexico.
“Otay Mesa is a key location in our network to serve the needs of our customers,” said Mike Zanolli, vice president of Operations, FedEx Freight, of the new facility. “Not only is it a pickup and delivery location for the San Diego area that enables us to deliver our customers’ FedEx Freight shipments more efficiently, but it also plays a role in our cross-border relationship.”
The service center represents a significant expansion of the FedEx Freight presence in Otay Mesa, increasing capacity to 40 dock doors from 17 at the previous location. Situated on 10 acres, the facility became operational on Aug. 18.
