FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. and the world’s largest express transportation company, has opened a facility in Kielce, Poland, equipped with a state-of-the-art sorter and strategically located to support local businesses with their domestic and international expansion.
The facility covers more than 2,600m2 and includes a warehouse and office space. Operations are conducted through 40 gates for courier vehicles and five for line-haul trucks, and up to 2,000 parcels can be handled simultaneously by an automatic, state-of-the-art sorter. Larger freight shipments are handled in a separate warehouse area equipped with a dedicated scale and scanner.
The site is strategically located at the exit of the S7 expressway, giving convenient connections to the rest of the country and Europe. It is also close to Katowice Airport, through which shipments are made to international markets in Asia and North America.
“We have been in business for over 50 years, and what has remained constant is our commitment to creating new opportunities, removing barriers to success and creating solutions that help customers thrive,” said Mariusz Mik, FedEx Express vice president of ground operations Eastern Europe. “Investing in infrastructure and improving our air and road networks consistently reflects our commitment to providing the best-possible service to our customers and meeting their evolving needs.”
With above-average economic growth rates, Central and Eastern Europe remains the region with the greatest potential for development. Since 2020, FedEx Express has expanded, modernized or constructed 12 facilities in six countries in the region. In Poland alone, new facilities have been constructed in Gdansk, Torun, Kalisz and Jelenia Gora.
