FedEx Logistics Opens Global Headquarters in Memphis
FedEx Logistics, Inc., a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., held an opening event at its new Global Headquarters in Downtown Memphis — a new focal point for the company’s global operations in 34 countries and territories.
“Great cities have great buildings. From this magnificent facility, our employees will collaborate, innovate, and serve our global customers,” said Udo Lange, president & CEO, FedEx Logistics. “The FedEx Logistics Global Headquarters is a vision for the future of global commerce, or as we like to say at FedEx: it’s where now meets next.”
FedEx Logistics — which invested more than $50 million to sustainably renovate the building and help rejuvenate downtown — offers air and ocean cargo, warehousing and distribution, customs brokerage, and trade solutions that attract additional customers, and add incredible value, to the FedEx portfolio.
The move to the nearly 200,000-square-feet former guitar manufacturing facility, which is located across the street from the FedExForum and one block from the historic Beale Street, will create a landmark site within the FedEx family of notable company locations.
Tennessee Governor Bill Lee said, “A global leader with a reputation for excellence, FedEx continues to invest in our state and provide high-quality jobs for Tennesseans. We are proud of this latest investment by FedEx in Downtown Memphis and the prosperity it will bring.”
