The premises will house teams that support its operations in Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

FedEx Express (FedEx), opened its new regional headquarters in Singapore on Tuesday (27 February 2024). 

In this new space, FedEx will continue to actively collaborate with local authorities to boost logistics capabilities, directly invest in logistics networks across the region, as well as share industrial expertise and technology to elevate logistics operations standards.

Further, the opening of its new regional headquarters will enable increased opportunities for Singapore employees to get international exposure, contributing to the professional development of the workforce.

The new regional headquarters is situated at Centennial Tower, spans 2,694 square meters, and prioritises sustainability. The office incorporates green-certified renovation products, with approximately 80% of new materials meeting local certification standards.

Additionally, energy-efficient electrical fixtures and automatic lighting controls are employed to reduce electrical consumption.

The inauguration ceremony was attended by distinguished guests, including Singapore’s Minister for Foreign Affairs, Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan; US Ambassador to Singapore, Jonathan Kaplan; and Chairman of the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), Png Cheong Boon.

Global FedEx leaders, including Raj Subramaniam, President and CEO of FedEx Corporation, and Richard W. Smith, President and CEO, Airline and International of FedEx Express, were also in attendance. 

Kawal Preet, President of Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa, FedEx Express said: ""Singapore’s geographic advantages make it a natural gateway which allows us to tap the immense opportunities presented by the fast-moving markets of the region, especially in Southeast Asia.

"As companies look to build more resilience in their supply chains, this move underlines our commitment to enhance the region’s logistics infrastructure." 

Minister Dr. Vivian Balakrishnan commented: “We welcome the new FedEx regional headquarters to Singapore. This move is a vote of confidence in Singapore as a key global hub for trade, logistics, and connectivity, and the key role that Singapore plays in strengthening the resilience of global supply chains."

Currently, Singapore is the location of the FedEx South Pacific hub, serving as a central point for its operations across Southeast Asia and the FedEx Life Science Center providing specialist cold chain solutions for the healthcare sector.
