MEMPHIS, Tenn.-FedEx Freight is opening four new service centers and expanding a fifth facility to meet growing customer demand throughout the United States.

“Increasing capacity remains an important business goal as FedEx Freight continues its long-term growth strategy focusing on next-day and second-day regional markets,” said Douglas G. Duncan, president and CEO of FedEx Freight. “Our efforts to build new facilities and upgrade current centers underscore our commitment to exceeding customers’ service and reliability expectations in these growing markets.”

Newly-constructed and recently-opened facilities include service centers in Des Plaines, Ill., Salem, Ore., Texarkana, Ark. and Springfield, Mass. In addition, a supplemental building at the company’s Long Island center in West Babylon, N.Y., will enhance area service and capacity capabilities.

These service center openings follow other recent expansions, including the addition of a new center in Gardena, Calif., and expanded facilities in Youngstown, Ohio, and Pocono Summit, Pa. FedEx Freight also recently announced plans for a new center near Sacramento, Calif., scheduled to open in 2006.
