FedEx not in Greensboro anymore?

Go figure. I was on the phone with FedEx yesterday and I noticed that lately all my packages were being routed through Winston-Salem. Winston-Salem. Wait a second. I’m in Greensboro. Whatever happened to the Ground Terminal in Greensboro that was off the Randleman exit? Since I had to make a call to trace a package, I happened to ask the question to the nice lady at the Ground Terminal.
“Just wondering, how come my packages are being routed through the Winston-Salem facility instead of the Greensboro one?”
“We are the Greensboro facility.”
“Huh?”
“We used to be located in Greensboro, but we moved to Winston-Salem.”
“Oh.”
Go figure. We might have gained a FedEx hub at the airport, but we lost the ground facility. Was it worth the trade-off? I don’t know. I didn’t even know the FedEx ground terminal moved. Apparently other people haven’t noticed either.
UPDATE (12:30PM): Apparently the FedEx station off of Vandalia is still there (as far as everyone knows). For some reason though, ground and overnight shipping goes to the Winston-Salem facility. Why the station at Vandalia doesn’t handle Greensboro’s ground and overnight is anyone’s guess.

  • Funny. Don’t know about that, but I do remember all the ruckus that was surrounded over the new FedEx hub, and how all the dumbasses that live near the airport were complaining about the increase in jet noise.
    And now, the Triad area has a new Dell Plant and a number of other corps there BECAUSE of the FedEx hub.

  • I don’t think it’s news. As per my update, I found out that the Vandalia station still exists. I always thought that ALL Greensboro packages were routed through there. Apparently I was wrong and GROUND and OVERNIGHT are routed through Winston-Salem. Don’t ask me why, perhaps they have a larger facility to accomodate those semis.
