This enables FedEx to "better serve" its customers not just in the AMEA region, but around the world, as is expected to elevate the organisation's overall global portfolio, Patrick Moebel, President, FedEx Trade Networks shares.
In a bid to expand its Asia, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) worldwide network, FedEx Logistics, a subsidiary of transport company FedEx, announced last week that it has established a Singapore office at Changi Business Park.
According to Patrick Moebel, President, FedEx Trade Networks, this move enables FedEx to "better serve" its customers not just in the AMEA region, but around the world, and is expected to elevate the organisation's overall global portfolio in providing one-source, end-to-end logistics solutions, as well as delivering best-in-class services.
"Our local, regional, and global customers who trade with Singapore benefit from our global reach and the many integrated services and solutions offered by FedEx Logistics. We are continuing to deliver for our customers by helping them navigate global commerce with the guidance of local expertise," Moebel shared.
In a similar vein, FedEx has recently signed an agreement with Guangdong Airport Authority Logistics Company to expand and upgrade the FedEx-Guangzhou Gateway by establishing a new FedEx South China Operations Centre at its Asia Pacific Hub in Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.
Based on its statement, the new FedEx South China Operations Centre will cover an area of over 41,000m2, more than double the size of the current Guangzhou Gateway, and is planned to become operational in 2027.
The centre will connect outbound shipments from customers in southern China with FedEx's international network through the Asia Pacific Hub. On top of that, it will receive and process inbound shipments arriving at the Hub for delivery to local customers through "state-of-the-art" sorting systems and operations areas to sort up to 25,000 packages and documents per hour, which was said to be three times the sorting efficiency of the current facility in Mainland China.
"FedEx will also integrate frontier technology and sustainability into the facility’s design to provide an eco-friendly working environment," shared in the statement.
"We continue to expand our network and service offerings to cater to the growing needs of our customers in the AMEA region and enhance their connections to global markets," Kawal Preet, President, AMEA, FedEx Express said.
"China is integral to our regional and global network. Our investment in the South China Operations Centre will support our long-term growth in a region with high economic potential. Guangzhou sits within the Greater Bay Area of the Pearl River Delta which includes Shenzhen and Hong Kong. It is a region that is taking proactive steps to integrate against a blueprint that will further strengthen its position as a global economic powerhouse."
