Doug Menuez on shooting a new image library for FedEx at the company’s massive Memphis hub

For his latest commission from FedEx, Doug Menuez documented operations at the company’s world hub, its biggest distribution center, located next to Memphis International Airport.

“It’s a massive facility where 7,000 employees process an average of 180,000 packages an hour and between 1.3 million and 1.5 million total packages a night,” he explains. “After 9:30 p.m., commercial flights stop at the main Memphis airport, and FedEx takes over with a carefully choreographed landing of 140 aircraft. Then they unload and reload through the night, and by 3 a.m. those 140 planes have all taken off for their destinations.”
