FedEx has announced a new round of hiring in Greensboro. The company is looking to fill about 400 positions.

The jobs will be added to the FedEx Express Mid-Atlantic Hub at the Piedmont Triad International Airport.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports the company has already advertised for these openings, and hopes to have them filled by the end of the year.

The shipping firm says the addition of new workers will bring total employment at the hub to more than 800 part-time, full-time and management positions.

Airport executive director Kevin Baker says FedEx has been an important employer in the Triad for over a decade.

FedEx opened the PTI hub in 2003, and has since opened a facility in nearby Kernersville that employs about 750 workers.
