GREENSBORO — FedEx Corp. is beginning operations at a $300 million airport hub in North Carolina, but the company has no immediate plans to expand the workforce there.

About 160 workers will move Monday from FedEx’s current Piedmont Triad International Airport terminal to the new hub, where company officials have long planned to increase volume to sort packages for the region.

FedEx spokesman Jim McCluskey said the Memphis, Tenn.-based company is still considering adding another 200 workers to the site in the fall, but he cautioned that those plans may depend on the economy. The company had previously planned to open the hub with between 600 and 800 workers, with plans to create about 1,500 jobs once the site reached peak capacity.
