CHARLOTTE — FedEx Ground is hiring nearly 500 team members to meet critical demand for service created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the company announced in a news release Monday.
While North Carolina officially reopened for service Memorial Day weekend, increased demand for online service remains as cases of the novel coronavirus continue to go up in the state.
