FedEx Express strengthens cross-border e-commerce capabilities with FedEx International Connect Plus
FedEx Express launches FedEx International Connect Plus (FICP), a new FedEx Express International, day-definite, e-commerce shipping service. This is said to combine competitive speed with attractive prices, in the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) region.
FICP further enhances FedEx e-commerce capabilities as businesses are increasingly looking for more diversified, cost-effective solutions to meet consumers’ ever-changing needs. Shipping costs and delivery options are two of the most significant drivers of cart abandonment – about 40 percent of consumers won’t complete checkout if the delivery costs are too high. Another 10 percent will abandon their cart if a package cannot be delivered on time or flexible delivery options are not available.
With FICP, e-tailers across ten markets including Australia, Hong Kong, India, Japan, mainland China, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand are now empowered to provide their customers with an international shipping solution with prices that offer value-for-money, while ensuring shipments will be delivered within 1 to 5 business days within AMEA.
This new service comes with the reliability of FedEx international, day-definite delivery service, coupled with its customs clearance expertise. It is further supported with capabilities including tracking, sending out notifications to receivers and flexibility to change delivery options via FedEx Delivery Manager, which gives e-tailers’ customers more visibility, control, and convenience over their online orders.
