The total project investment includes purchase of vacant land for $1,400,000, construction of an 11,680 square foot office building and ancillary truck terminal improvements at a cost of $7,099,485, and $200,000 in new personal property.

RDX is an integrated trucking and transportation company providing nationwide third-party freight and logistics services. Founded in 2011, by two first generation Americans working as truck drivers themselves, RDX and its related companies have grown to more than $23,000,000 in annual revenues. RDX currently employs 19 people in its leased facility located in Bartlett, Tennessee. The operation supports 85 drivers and 80 trucks.

RDX continues to grow and has been evaluating locations to move its operation into a facility that can accommodate more employees and vehicles. The company needs to be south of I-240 to improve efficiency with access to warehouses, reduce driver hours and reduce fuel consumption. The new facility needs to house all administrative, sales, dispatch and training functions. If financially feasible, the company desires to build and own a facility designed for their specific needs.

This project would complete the revitalization of the former Mall of Memphis site.

Estimated annual City and County property taxes will be $94,477 during the PILOT term and $247,437 after. The location produces $32,436 today in property taxes. Staff projects $809,628 in total local tax revenues to be received during the PILOT term of this project and a $937,025 benefit to the Applicant.
