FedEx Freight has opened a 218-door facility in Phoenix, bringing the company’s door count to almost 26,000, according to a press release.

“We’re talking about more than adding buildings or square footage,” said Lance Moll, FedEx Freight president and CEO. “This is about strategically planning capacity increases to better serve our customers in growing markets.”

FedEx Freight regularly evaluates opportunities to invest in capacity growth through door and yard expansions and fleet maintenance shop footprints. Additional focuses include continually evaluating the network based on changing market conditions and maximizing the use of existing assets (such as collaboration within the FedEx enterprise network to reduce empty miles and provide peak support).

Memphis-based parent company FedEx Corp. is No. 1 on the FleetOwner 500: Top For-Hire Fleets of 2022.

“We will continue to invest in our network that provides the fastest published transit times in the industry,” Moll said. “We have several projects underway to modernize and selectively expand centers to increase capacity over the next several years. We are confident our customers will benefit from these projects in the long run.”

FedEx Freight will continue to invest in its team and network, profitably growing its differentiated product offerings, including FedEx Freight Direct, the company’s e-commerce answer to providing nationwide to-the-door and through-the-door delivery for heavy, bulky shipments, into consumers’ homes and businesses. Growing cross-border shipping services on both the northern and southern U.S. borders, with broker-inclusive offerings and a customs clearance team, aims to provide customers with a seamless experience, according to the company.
