FedEx Transcon Through IND?

Thu Jan 08, 2004 4:52 am

I am at this time tracking package of mine coming from California. It came through LAX, then I noticed that it stopped in IND. I thought all FedEx transcon ops went through MEM. I live in NH so most likely my package will be coming into either MHT or BOS. Does FE have regularly scheduled flights between IND and MHT/BOS?

Fedex has a H U G E facility at IND and I think the airport is going to move the intrastate hiway to expand more for Fedex.

IND airport authority, city, commerce commission are very aggressive at trying to bring higher skilled jobs/higher paying jobs to the area and expand their facilities although I think they have had a few dud's USPS comes to mind.

The answer is yes on your package routing.

FedEx does have a large facility at IND and it is only going to get larger. Rumor has it that FedEx is going to get more flights in and out of IND and they are going to expand the structure (FedEx is on the south side of the field). The state DOT is already moving a good portion of an interstate to facilitate the expansion. The northside of the field was busy at one time, they had a USPS operation and the United Maintenance Center. I think both of those buildings sit empty.

The big stations for FDX are MEM, IND, OAK, ANC. They kind of split the east coast between MEM and IND, west coast splits go OAK, and International to Asia goes through ANC. Then there's Narita (I believe) in Japan, and one of the Paris airports for Europe. Orly I think?

Paris also serves shipments from the US going to the Southwest Asia (UAE, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, etc.). They often leave the US from IND.

CDG is their Europe hub. Subic bay is their Asian hub. Don't forget about EWR and AFW are hubs for them also. LAX is a very large station also for them.
