FedEx Express has completed an expansion of its air cargo hub at Miami International Airport. It will increase capacity and capabilities at the company’s Americas gateway, which connects the US and Canada to Latin America and the Caribbean.
The $72.2 million expansion adds more than 138,000sq ft to the main sort facility, bringing it to over 282,000sq ft. The enhancements include a new customs clearance area and a new 70,000sq ft cold chain facility, the largest in the FedEx global network, comprising multiple rooms ranging from -13 °F to 77°F for perishables and pharmaceuticals.
FedEx shipping volume through Miami-Dade County grew by 30.9% between 2019 and 2020.
