ST. LUCIE COUNTY ― FedEx Ground, the ground delivery subsidiary of FedEx Corp. will be opening a new 245,000 square-foot regional sortation facility in Port St. Lucie designed to efficiently add package capacity through the sortation of up to 15,000 packages per hour and better serve customers amid the explosive growth of e-commerce. The new facility will be located at 13701 SW Anthony F Sansone SR Boulevard in Port St. Lucie, FL 34987.

FedEx is an equal opportunity/affirmative action employer (minorities/ females/disability/ veterans) committed to a diverse workforce.

“We continue to invest in our people, facilities and technology to address the industry capacity shortage and support our growing customers,” said Robert J. Deans, Vice President of Southern Regional Operations. “This strategically-located new facility in Port St. Lucie will incorporate the latest automation and material handling systems to enhance the service we provide to our customers throughout Florida.”

Since June 2021, in response to the explosive growth of e-commerce, FedEx Ground has launched expansion projects expected to add nearly 14.4 million square feet (300 football fields) of sortation capacity in time for this holiday season.

Capacity investments include a new hub, four new automated stations, 11 new regional sortation facilities, six new large package centers, and the expansion of more than 80 existing operating facilities with additional material handling equipment and automation.

Regional sortation facilities, such as the new operation in Port St. Lucie are designed to relieve hub capacity constraints by acting as regional direct injection points for large e-commerce customers. This enables e-tailers to bypass large hub sortation operations and inject shipments closer to their end customers.

In the past six years, FedEx Ground has added nearly 43 million square feet, the equivalent of 1.5 square miles, to its network, including more than 65 new fully automated facilities.

FedEx Ground continues to leverage its seven-day operations, including delivery to 100% of the U.S. population Monday through Friday, 98% on Saturday and nearly 95% on Sunday.

FedEx Ground, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), is headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pa., and is a leader in cost-effective package ground shipping, offering dependable service to businesses and residential customers throughout the U.S. and Canada. Through more than 185,000 employees, 650 distribution hubs and local pickup-and-delivery stations, and 97,000 motorized vehicles operated by 5,500 locally owned small businesses, FedEx Ground transported more than 9.3 million packages a day in its latest fiscal quarter. The company reported annual revenue of $30.5 billion in fiscal year 2021.
