FedEx Express, Ground operations in Montana city to run in same building

FedEx Express and FedEx Ground employees in a Montana city will soon be working in the same building, and, for some shipments, together.

FedEx Express employees in Kalispell, Montana, will conduct operations at FedEx Ground’s facility there once a building lease begins August 31. The two companies’ work in that building “will remain independent of one another,” FedEx said in a statement.

FedEx Express will, however, hand off some packages to FedEx Ground in Kalispell for delivery. Express and Ground’s cohabitation in the city is the latest example of the two separate companies interacting with each other, following frequent analyst calls to integrate parts of the two.
