FedEx opens new Leipzig logistics hub


FedEx Express has opened a new logistics facility at Kabelsketal, northwest of Leipzig and close to Leipzig/Halle Airport to cater for an increased volume of consignments, particularly in the larger customers’ segment.

 The site includes a 3,400sq m warehouse, six loading bays for lorries, 63 for vans and six for 7.5-tonne trucks. Twelve charging stations have been installed for the vans and six for employees’ cars. Sorting capacity is doubled compared to the previous facility while a new loading and unloading concept has reduced traffic in the warehouse and thus the risk of accidents at work.

Vice president ground operations Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Nordics, Stefan Dries, said: “We are supporting our customers in the region with their growth ambitions,” The site in Kabelsketal is well equipped for increasing shipment volumes in both freight and parcel.”

The new building in Kabelsketal is the fourth location in Germany that FedEx Express has opened in the 18 months. Following the opening of the Nufringen station in early summer 2022 and the modernisation of the air gateway in Stuttgart in spring 2023, the company expanded and modernised the site in Karlsruhe at the end of January.
