Logistics BusinessFedEx Opens New Logistics Site in Chorzów, Poland

FedEx Express has opened its new station in Chorzów, Poland.

The new 7,000-square-metre facility is located at the ultramodern Prologis Park Chorzów logistics centre, located near the A4 highway and Gliwice-So?nice junction – an intersection of the two biggest international road transport corridors in Poland. As the new station is much easier to reach by road infrastructure, it will improve the efficiency of shipments to all locations in Poland and to the rest of the world.

Opening the centre at the Chorzów logistics park provides a boost to operating capacity. The extensive infrastructure at the new location allows FedEx couriers to more efficiently load their trucks, resulting in earlier pick-ups and deliveries and, as a consequence, faster customer service. The centre is equipped with nine line haul ramps, 15 line haul parking spaces, and 22 dock levellers for courier vehicles.

FedEx has also launched a sorting sub-centre at the new location, handling parcels arriving from southern Poland and from around Wroc?aw and Pozna?. The launch of an innovative parcel sorting system consisting of driven roller conveyor modules with inline weighing scales significantly speeds up delivery of packages to customers in these regions.
