The FedEx Corporate Services in Melville will close next year, a move that will affect 61 employees, company officials confirmed Friday.
FedEx officials confirmed Friday that the Melville location will be closing, adding that this is part of the integration of FedEx with TNT Express N.V.
“We are reviewing the operations of both companies, including facilities, to ensure the combined organization is properly staffed and will deliver value for our employees, customers and shareowners,” a statement supplied by FedEx officials said.
With that, 61 team members at the 68 South Service Road location are “being offered positions that do not impact their base salary,” the statement continued. In addition, they will also be offered relocation assistance packages.
Some employees will be displaced on Dec. 31 and the remaining employees will be displaced on May 31, 2018, the official closing date.
