FedEx Strengthens Healthcare Portfolio with Opening of Cold Chain Center Memphis
In today’s evolving healthcare industry, temperature matters.
It’s estimated that 25 percent of healthcare shipments are temperature sensitive, meaning a rise or a dip in temperature could render a shipment unusable. These materials, such as crucial pharmaceuticals or critical vaccines, are entrusted to FedEx every day, and we deliver.
Now, with the grand opening of the FedEx Cold Chain Center Memphis, FedEx has raised the bar for handling these shipments, and strengthened our entire portfolio of healthcare solutions available to our customers.
Located on the property of the FedEx Express World Hub, the 83,000-square-foot Cold Chain Center Memphis facility offers customers peace of mind that their shipments will remain within their intended temperature range in the event of unforeseen delays, such as clearance holds or inclement weather.
Customers also benefit from the facility’s unique ability to interface directly with Memphis World Hub operations, meaning shipments stay within FedEx custodial control.
