Feb 02, 2016: FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, has launched FedEx Customised Freight (FCF) in mainland China, a new service for outbound shipments from China to the rest of the world and inbound shipments from the United States and key Asian markets to China. The service benefits customers with special temperature control, package security and shipping needs, including those in the high-tech, healthcare, and manufacturing sectors.
“Customers’ needs are constantly evolving in a changing market, and FedEx is always looking for ways to adapt and innovate our solutions to cater to them,” said Karen Reddington, president, FedEx Express Asia Pacific. “FedEx Customised Freight is one example of this. This solution is aimed at customers with complex or unusual shipping requirements, who benefit from a tailor-made shipping service combined with FedEx industry-leading supply chain expertise.”
The main features include customised solutions and network routing using the FedEx network and aircraft, dedicated vehicles to pick up and deliver packages and priority handling and boarding on FedEx freighters.
Other benefits include weekend and holiday deliveries, 24/7 shipment management, including proactive monitoring and near-real-time transit data and shipment audit upon arrival to ensure all specifications match the initial solution design and the document audit trail meets regulatory compliance requirements.
Last August, the company launched its One-Stop Cold Chain Solution to meet the temperature-control and time-sensitive needs of the country’s healthcare industry. FCF is already available in Australia, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan.
FedEx Express provides fast and reliable delivery to more than 220 countries and territories. FedEx Express uses a global air-and-ground network to speed delivery of time-sensitive shipments, by a definite time and date supported by a money-back guarantee.
