FedEx Supply Chain, formerly known as GENCO, has begun activity at its 1.1 million-square-foot multi-tenant warehouse in Memphis, Tennessee.
“In the medical drug and device space, and particularly in the drug space, many times the supply chains of those manufacturers require immediate next-day air shipments,” said Kevin J. McPherson, vice president of Healthcare Logistics for FedEx Supply Chain. “So by being close to the FedEx global hub, we can shuttle product over there very quickly as late as midnight or 1 a.m. and get product delivered the next day.”
The multi-tenant approach is designed to offer a scalable model, including pricing, for small and medium-sized customers.
