A December look at the FedEx World Hub, Memphis

fedex shipping depot december Here’s a neat look at FedEx’s Memphis World Hub at December peak, their “Superbowl” as they put it, as seen on Nightly Business Report 12/9/16.
We’ve toured this facility twice, and it really is as amazing as it looks. Pay particular attention to the sliding ramps–we once saw the whole thing jam up with a big package caught cross-wise. The whole line stopped, then a huge technician crawled into the tube and used his foot to kick everything loose. So don’t be so skeptical when we ask you to pack your goods in a new, strong box, with lots of padding–a “Fragile” sticker isn’t a magic talisman!
