OREANDA-NEWS. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy, and Mayor AC Wharton visited the FedEx Memphis Hub on Friday to learn more about the new FedEx Cold Chain Center, a state of the art facility set to open in Spring 2015.

The new FedEx Cold Chain Center is designed primarily for high-value, temperature-sensitive goods, like healthcare shipments and will also accommodate other perishables, including flowers and food products.

The government officials toured various facilities in Memphis, as airport area development is a key factor in the support from the interagency partnership of HUD, DOT and EPA's Sustainable Communities program.
