Why FedEx Made the Move
FedEx's $8 million shipping transfer center in the Montana Connections Business Development Park was completed in August 2011. The 67-door cross dock facility is used as a gateway service center for shipments to and from Canada, as well as a regional relay facility.

The site was chosen based on:
- excellent access to both Interstate 15 (north-south) and Interstate 90 (east-west)
- inexpensive land
- great access to a skilled and affordable work force.

The 45,000 square-foot building and accompanying site development were made possible, in part, due to support from the Butte-Silver Bow Tax Increment District (TID) in the form of a $550,000 grant for site work.
