FedEx is opening a new FedEx Ground sorting facility in South Dallas and will hire 1,200 people to help run the facility.
The 778,000-square-foot warehouse is located at 3900 Cedardale Road, south of Interstate 20 near Lancaster and is expected to handle up to 15,500 packages per hour.
In a press release, FedEx cited "the explosive growth of e-commerce" and a need to "optimize package capacity in time for the holiday season" as a key factor in the addition of the regional sorting facility.
"Regional sortation facilities 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," FedEx said.
FedEx Ground is adding regional sorting facilities in six markets, including Dallas. Other capacity investments include four new automated stations, eight new or expanded large package centers and the expansion of 50 existing operating facilities with additional material handling equipment and automation.
Position Benefits Include:
- Competitive wages dependent on shift; currently offering $3.00/hour additional pay for weekend work.
- Day and night shifts available.
- Paid parental leave.
- Wide range of benefits, after a minimum threshold of service, including medical, dental and vision coverage, paid time off, holiday pay and tuition reimbursement.
- Employee discounts on cell phone service, groceries, car purchases and more.
FedEx said all stations are equipped with all necessary precautions in line with the latest guidance from public health organizations. Interested candidates can visit groundwarehousejobs.fedex.com or text "FXGflyer" (one word) to 33011.
