PITTSBURGH — FedEx Ground will be shutting down its package delivery facility in Clinton, Pa., on May 16, eliminating 186 jobs.

The closure is part of a plan to improve efficiency and is not related to the COVID-19 outbreak, according to spokeswoman Allie Addoms.

“FedEx Ground continuously evaluates its network to ensure it is in the best possible position to meet industry and customer needs,” she said in an email.

Business will be picked up by FedEx’s other facilities in the area, she said.

Employees at the Clinton facility will have the opportunity to transfer to “available” openings at nearby locations in Pennsylvania, Addoms said.

FedEx Ground is a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. based in Memphis, Tenn. The parent company ranks No. 2 on the Transport Topics Top 100 list of the largest for-hire carriers, and No. 11 on the Top 50 logistics list.
