FedEx Trade Networks, the freight forwarding and customs brokerage arm of FedEx, has announced the opening of its Atlanta gateway office. The new location will provide freight forwarding, customs brokerage and distribution solutions.
The new 77,100 sq ft facility, located at the built-to-suit facility at Camp Creek Business Center in Atlanta, US, has 62,100 sq ft dedicated to warehouse and distribution space. It is located less than five miles from the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport.
The office’s proximity to the airport and onsite distribution capabilities enables it to serve as a gateway to support the end-to-end supply chain needs of the company’s freight forwarding and customs brokerage customers. In utilizing a gateway operating model in Atlanta, the company states that it can provide efficient and cost-effective solutions for consolidated, heavy weight, international cargo shipments.
“The metro Atlanta area is a global logistics hub supporting international trade with an extensive intermodal network of air, road, rail and port options for our customers,” said John Gazitua, Vice President, FedEx Trade Networks US and Canada Operations. “By expanding our Atlanta operations with additional distribution space, we can help our customers improve their supply chain efficiency, transit times and overall costs with streamlined gateway solutions.”
