FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, today announced the opening of a new logistics facility northwest of Leipzig. The new facility in Kabelsketal, in the immediate vicinity of Leipzig/Halle Airport, is a response to the increased volume of consignments, particularly in the larger customers’ segment.

The site, which covers over 17,000 square metres, offers space for a warehouse of around 3,400 square metres and an office area of over 850 square metres. The site has six loading bays for lorries, 63 for vans and six for 7.5-tonne trucks. Twelve charging stations have been installed for the vans and six for employees’ cars. The sorting capacity has doubled compared to the previous facility. A new loading and unloading concept has reduced traffic in the warehouse and thus the risk of accidents at work. A suburban railway connection close to the site ensures good connections to the cities of Leipzig and Halle.

“We are supporting our customers in the region with their growth ambitions,” says Stefan Dries, Vice President Ground Operations Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Nordics for FedEx Express. “The site in Kabelsketal is well equipped for increasing shipment volumes in both freight and parcel.”

The new building in Kabelsketal is the fourth location in Germany that FedEx Express has opened in the last eighteen months. Following the opening of the Nufringen station in early summer 2022 and the modernisation of the air gateway in Stuttgart in spring 2023, the company expanded and modernised the site in Karlsruhe at the end of January.
