FedEx Express Opens Enhanced Gateway in Madrid Barajas

FedEx Express Opens Enhanced Gateway in Madrid Barajas

Madrid, March 20, 2023 – FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, today announces the opening of a newly refurbished facility in the cargo center of the Adolfo Suarez – Madrid Barajas Airport.

This gateway, strategically located, will help support Spanish businesses with their domestic and international expansion. The project has included the full refurbishment of the warehouse, external yard, and office block, as well as the installation of a new sort system, castor deck equipment and photovoltaic system.

The facility covers 3.500 square meters for the warehouse, 2.250 square meters for offices, exterior parking, interior underground parking space and direct connection to Air Side. The main warehouse will be able to manage an inbound capacity of 3,600 packages per hour, plus an outbound X-Ray sorting capacity of 450 pack per hour and 1,800 packages per hour for x-ray by-pass. For larger shipments, it has been enabled with a cage capacity that includes up to 17 docks for trailers, trucks, and vans for loading and unloading shipments. In addition, this warehouse can securely store up to 3,300 pieces and up to 99 pallets in total.

This new gateway will increase handling capacity, provide better reliability and improve the working environment for the team members working at the facility,” said Ian Silverton, Managing Director Ground Operations FedEx Spain and Portugal. “It is a shining example of how we’re designing our new facilities to meet our customer’s needs,” he added.

The facility will benefit from the installation of solar panels which are already in place at some of FedEx Europe’s key facilities like the Charles de Gaulle Hub in Paris and the Cologne Hub in Germany. This Madrid Gateway is the newest facility in Europe to be equipped with this sustainable technology. It will feature 156 panels covering an area of 339 m2, and it is estimated to produce approximately 95 megawatt hours of electricity annually. These panels will produce about 17% of the energy needs of the premises. Other sustainable features include LED lighting and a smart water management system to reduce water use.

FedEx Spain has five air gateways in Madrid, Barcelona, Sevilla, Valencia, and Vitoria; two road hubs In Madrid and Barcelona and 26 stations nationwide.
