– FedEx Ground Package System Inc. is moving forward with plans
to build a distribution center in Menomonee Falls.
According to a village Architectural Control Board report, FedEx
would develop the 202,950-square-foot building on 30 acres on
the south side of County Line Road in Menomonee Falls. The
majority of the building would be used as a distribution center,
but would have 8,625 square feet set aside for offices.
The Architectural Control Board will review the proposal at its
meeting on Tuesday.
With the proposed distribution center at full capacity, it would
have 466 employees, including 74 office employees. The report
states that 205 of the center’s employees would be full time,
and the facility would operate 24 hours a day, seven days a
“According to the application materials, the facility is being
constructed to receive packages for delivery within the
Menomonee Falls area and to collect packages from the Menomonee
Falls areas for distribution to other locations,” the report
states. “Generally the operations include the receipt, sorting
and distribution of packages, with support office functions.
With the exception of a few packages that are held for customer
pick-up, packages are not stored at the facility, but are
transferred through the facility.”
Moon Township, Pa.-based FedEx Ground provides small-package
ground delivery services.
