FedEx Ground Station Tour

The Grand Rapids station is part of the FedEx Ground network of 590 facilities. This state-of-the-art station exhibits FedEx Ground's commitment to technological innovation that drives their superior accelerated service.

 

Package volumes for FedEx Ground have doubled in the last decade, and they have opened 15 new hubs and expanded or relocated more than 500 local facilities to account for this tremendous growth. They continue to strategically invest in their network - including this fully automated station in Grand Rapids - to boost daily package volume capacity and further enhance the speed and service capabilities of the FedEx Ground network. Chip Vanderzwaag is gracious enough to show us around the facility.
