FedEx Express has opened a new facility in Nufringen Germany, which is located southwest of Stuttgart, creating over 30 additional jobs in the region.
By relocating from Sindelfingen, the company is expanding its services for customers and offering its team members a more modern and state-of-the-art working environment.
Customers will benefit from significantly increased capacity with later pickup times of up to two hours enabling them to schedule a pickup up until 5 pm for next-day delivery within Europe.
“The demand for fast shipping solutions is constantly increasing in these sectors. With the new site in Nufringen, FedEx will be able to adapt much more effectively to constantly growing customer demand and further expand its services in the region.”Stefan Dries, FedEx Vice-President Ground Operations Germany, Austria and Switzerland
