FedEx Logistics to Move Global Headquarters to Downtown Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FedEx Logistics, a subsidiary of FedEx Corporation (NYSE:FDX), announced
that it will move its global headquarters to the former Gibson Guitar
factory building in downtown Memphis, consolidating multiple locations
and nearly 700 team members into the new location over the next several

This is a moment of dynamic growth and transformation both for our
company and for the city of Memphis, and we at FedEx Logistics are
thrilled to be a part of this revitalization of downtown Memphis,” said
Richard W. Smith, president and CEO of FedEx Logistics. “By combining
our disparate offices into a dynamic campus, it became economically
attractive to provide this fantastic environment for our team members.
This will be a great space for collaboration among the different aspects
of our business and a true home for our growing company as we attract
new talent for the future of FedEx.”

FedEx Logistics has executed a multi-year lease to move its offices to
the former Gibson Guitar factory building beginning April 2020. While
the existing building comprised 154,000 square feet when purchased,
FedEx Logistics staff size and spatial needs will prompt the
construction of an additional mezzanine to grow total square footage to
just under 200,000 square feet. LRK has been engaged as architect for
the project.

Last month, FedEx Logistics announced its rebranding from FedEx Trade
Networks, Inc. to FedEx Logistics, a name that better describes the
company’s ability to meet its customers’ increasingly complex and
industry-specific supply chain, transportation, value-added services,
and brokerage needs. FedEx Logistics provides specialty solutions that
complete a simple, seamless and powerful global trade experience for
FedEx customers around the world.

With FedEx Logistics creating more than 680 jobs in Memphis, they are
once again showing that Tennessee is a great place to do business,”
Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee said. “FedEx and its subsidiaries have been a
true Tennessee success story, and we as a state are proud to see this
company continue to grow and call Tennessee home.”

It’s an exciting time to be in Memphis, and with FedEx as one of our
largest employers, they are a big reason why,” said Memphis Mayor Jim
Strickland. “FedEx Logistics moving their headquarters downtown is
another great step towards building up our core city and bringing more
jobs downtown. It takes strong partners to accomplish the goals we have
on economic development, and we couldn’t have a better partner than this

It is great to see FedEx continuing to invest in Memphis, especially in
our urban core. FedEx Logistics Headquarters will add a financial boost
and vibrant new energy in a key downtown location,” said Shelby County
Mayor Lee Harris.
