Spain: new gateway for pan-European transport
Fedex Express has opened a new ground operations centre in the Zona France industrial area in Barcelona (Spain). The facility serves as a gateway between the Barcelona region and Europe.
The centre has a gross floor area of 16,905 sqm, and is equipped with leading-edge technology, including integrated weight and volume capture systems that provide 360° images of all sides of the package, thus increasing traceability.
A state-of-the-art cross-belt sorting system enables processing of up to 10,000 packages per hour, and the cross-dock warehouse has 93 docks for trucks and 120 for vans. (ben)
