FedEx opens new facility at Perth Airport
FedEx Express has opened a new facility at Perth Airport in Western Australia. The 3,000 square metre site is more than twice the size of the previous facility, and it is also closer to the Perth cargo terminal, with better highway entry points.
In a statement issued earlier this month, FedEx said that it is investing in advanced logistics at the facility, including an automated cargo sorting system to meet the fast-growing demand for express cargo.
The new facility has the capacity to sort up to 3,000 packages an hour.
“FedEx is making strategic investments in the physical infrastructure and technology that will support e-commerce and SME businesses in Australia, as well as our B2B customer base,” said Kim Garner, managing director of FedEx Express Australasia.
“In Perth alone, our road fleet has doubled over the past decade. Our enhanced facility in Perth is in direct response to Australia’s e-commerce boom and by improving efficiencies, we will connect more West Australians to international markets.”
FedEx has been operating in Perth since the 1990s and also has facilities in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra Gold Coast, Melbourne and Sydney.
