FedEx to add new Dublin facility
11 / 10 / 2023
FedEx Express Europe is building a new logistics facility close to Dublin Airport as it looks to cater for future growth and expedite operations.
The new facility will have warehousing measuring 14,561 sq m and offer 30 loading bays for trucks and 137 loading bays for vans.
It will be located at the Horizon Business Park to the south of the airport and will also serve as the firm’s headquarters in Ireland.
Operations to be carried out at the facility include pickup and delivery, aircraft operations, customs clearance and other back-office functions.
The facility is due to become operational in early 2025.
FedEx said that in 2021 Ireland had exported goods worth more than €165bn.
Mike Roche, manager director at FedEx Express, Ireland, said: “We are thrilled to announce our expansion in Dublin, which enhances our operations in Ireland, and sets us and our customers up for future growth in this important market.
“This new facility will also enable us to reduce transfer times to and from the airport, meaning we’ll continue to provide fast, reliable service to Irish businesses trading within the domestic market or looking to go global.”
The facility will also be designed to have a minimal impact on the environment with rooftop solar panels, insulated ceiling and wall panels, and double-glazed UV protective windows and compliance with the Nearly Zero Energy Building (NZEB) standard.
