HOUSTON (KIAH) – FedEx Ground is looking to hire 185 people for a new regional sortation facility.

The company opened the new 534,000 square-foot regional sortation facility on Aldine Bender Road in Houston. The facility is designed to process up to 15,000 packages per hour.

FedEx says the site currently employs 690 team members and the company wants to hire an additional 185 team members for the holiday season.

Since June 2021, in response to the explosive growth of e-commerce, FedEx Ground has launched expansion projects expected to add nearly 14.4 million square feet, which is equal to about 300 football fields, of sortation capacity in time for this holiday season.
