It’s always great when a plan comes together, and June 4th marks the official grand opening of our new employee entrance and screening facility at the MEM World HUB. This construction is part of a much bigger multi-million dollar project which has been ongoing for the last two years. At the HUB we call it the “180k plan." In layperson terms, the 180k plan is a project to allow us to increase our box sort rate from 160,000 packages per hour up to 180,000 boxes per hour (hence the 180k name).
I am sure many of you have heard the MEM Airport will be closing down one of its runways for repairs/resurfacing from March through November of this year. Let me spend a few minutes letting you know the actions we are taking to minimize the impact to our customers.
