FedEx opens new ramp at the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport


FedEx Express has announced the opening of its new San Juan Airport ramp operation located at the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport (SJU) in Carolina, Puerto Rico. The ramp, which replaces the former FedEx facility, is part of its plan to increase operational efficiency and meet growing customer demands.

The 70,000 sq ft facility integrates delivery, pick-up and air operations, with a sorting capacity of up to 2,400 packages per hour and 14 truck-loading docks. The facility will be equipped with refrigerated and temperature-controlled capabilities to meet the needs of the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries, the main sectors of Puerto Rican economy. The new ramp allows for better aircraft positioning to facilitate on-time departures and same-business-day services, including those available to St. Thomas and St. Croix in the US Virgin Islands.

Basil Khalil, Vice President of Operations of Puerto Rico, Caribbean and Central America, FedEx Express Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) Division, commented, “The opening of our new FedEx Express San Juan Airport ramp is another milestone toward our commitment to strengthening our infrastructure while providing our customers in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean enhanced services and greater connectivity to the global market.”
