FedEx Distribution Center Planned

Lindale Economic Development Corp sold an almost 18-acre site in Lindale Industrial Park to Tyler FXG, a subsidiary of Kansas City-based Jones Development, with plans to build a 163k SF distribution center for FedEx Ground. MW Builders of Temple will serve as the GC. Construction will start immediately it's slated to open July 2014, says City of Lindale EDC prez John Clary (here, with city councilman Bob Tardiff at the ICSC event in Dallas last fall.) The new distribution center will replace two existing faciltiies nearby and is part of FedEx's nationwide network expansion to boost its daily package volume capacity and enhance the speed and service capabilities.
