FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx, is enhancing its intercontinental services between Vietnam and other markets in Asia, Middle East, Africa (AMEA) and Europe with the introduction of a new flight offering faster transit times.
Effective October 31, 2023, the new flight will use a dedicated B767 freighter flying four evenings a week from Ho Chi Minh City connecting Asia and Europe through the FedEx Asia Pacific hub in Guangzhou, China, says an official release. "Exporters shipping from Southern Vietnam will benefit from faster transit times for shipments to major Asian markets in just one business day, and two business days to Europe."
These new flights offer additional capacity on top of the current five flights to Asia, Europe, and the U.S. – four morning flights through the FedEx South Pacific Hub in Singapore and one current evening flight through the Asia Pacific hub, the release added. "With a total of nine weekly flights departing from Ho Chi Minh City, FedEx continues to support businesses in tapping the huge growth potential in the region."
Kawal Preet, President, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa region, FedEx Express says: “We continue to transform our air network to offer differentiated service for our customers and that includes building capacity and creating faster connections to meet demand. The tiger economies of Southeast Asia continue to grow at an accelerated pace with a forecast of 4.9% growth in 2024. What we are seeing happening in Vietnam is a great example of these regional trends. Our enhanced service in Vietnam is part of our journey to build a more flexible, efficient, and intelligent network and deliver an outstanding customer experience.”
