KANSAS CITY, Mo. — FedEx Ground will begin operations next month out of a new 548,500-square-foot large package distribution center within Kansas City’s Northland Park.

The new distribution center at 4029 N. Pleasant Ave. is expected to create approximately 300 jobs upon opening, a count the company plans to grow as necessary to support increased demand for service in the area, FedEx Ground spokeswoman Nikki Mendicino told the Kansas City Business Journal.

FedEx’s website on Monday listed openings for operations administrative and package handler jobs at the new address.

FedEx Corp. currently employs 4,100 people in the metro area and more than 400,000 overall.
