FORT WORTH - FedEx Ground is building a new distribution center at AllianceTexas that will employ about 375 workers.

The new 300,000-sf distribution center, expected to open in August 2015, will be located near the company's Southwest Regional Sort Hub at Alliance Airport.

FedEx Ground currently has six facilities in the area and employs over 2,800 people. At Alliance, FedEx has about 600,000 sf and employs more than 800 workers.

According to the Memphis-based company, the new facility is part of a nationwide network expansion to boost daily package volume capacity and further enhance the speed and service capabilities of the FedEx Ground network.

Since 2005, the company has opened 11 new hubs featuring advanced material-handling systems and expanded or relocated more than 500 local facilities.

FedEx Ground is not the only FedEx division to expand in the area. FedEx Office & Print Services Inc. broke ground earlier this year in Plano for a new 265,000-sf corporate campus.
