DOTHAN, Alabama — FedEx Ground plans to open a $57 million logistics facility in Houston County, adding another hub to the robust network of distribution and logistics centers that has been expanding across Alabama through a series of new projects.
Officials in Houston County said the 317,000-square-foot FedEx Ground facility will stand on a 70-acre site off Sam Houston Boulevard located in the Sam Houston Industrial Park. The facility will create 200-plus jobs.
“This project is an excellent example of area cooperation as we worked with all the state, city and county entities to bring about this distribution project in the Dothan area,” Mayor Mark Saliba said.
Since 2020, Alabama locations have attracted a slew of distribution and logistics projects from companies responding to changing consumer demand.
