BRASELTON, GA. — FedEx Ground, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., has developed a new distribution center located at 350 Braselton Parkway in Braselton, about 50 miles northeast of Atlanta. The 500,000-square-foot facility is part of the company’s network expansion plan that includes the addition of 17 major hubs and 500 facilities either expanded or relocated since 2005.

A ribbon-cutting ceremony for the facility is scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 25. The building will open with more than 350 employees, and FedEx Ground plans to add positions as the demand for service grows. The new facility will be able to sort up to 15,000 packages per hour.

FedEx Ground has 105,000 employees, more than 600 distribution hubs and local pickup-and-delivery stations and 63,000 motorized vehicles operated by 5,600 locally owned small businesses to transport more than 8.3 million packages daily. The daily volume of packages that FedEx Ground handles has more than doubled in the past 10 years.
