Another major company is moving to Surrey. FedEx Freight has announced the construction of a new, multi-million dollar service centre. FedEx Freight is the newest addition to Wesgroup’s PacificLink Industrial Park, located in the high-growth area along Scott Road and Grace Road, adjacent to the South Fraser Perimeter Road Project (SFPR).
FedEx Freight’s VP of operations, Grant Crawford, says the facility will be the largest in Canada, and is expected to cost over 20-million dollars. “Vancouver just continues to be such a dynamic area of opportunity and ongoing growth.” Crawford says FedEx Freight currently uses a local supplier that will now become a part of its operation. Around fifty jobs will be added immediately, but Crawford says the potential for massive growth exists.
