Federal Express Corporation (US) Key Developments

FedEx Express Opens New Hub in Mexico

FedEx Express has opened FedEx Hub Nacional Mexico in the State of Mexico with an investment of $48 million. The new hub will become the centerpiece of domestic operations and will enable reductions in transit times, improved pick-ups, and more efficient deliveries throughout the country. FedEx developed every aspect of the facility with the idea of making shipments to any part of Mexico easier. Due to its location, the 70,000 square feet of space, its 53 platforms for loading and unloading, the implementation of the latest technology, and the support of nearly 800 employees, the FedEx Hub Nacional Mexico will enable operations to improve transit times and extend pick-up schedules throughout the country.

FedEx Express Opens North Pacific Regional Hub at Kansai Airport

FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. commenced operations at its new North Pacific Regional Hub, located at Kansai International Airport in Osaka, Japan, on April 1, 2014. The new facility has the capacity to sort up to 9,000 packages per hour. It serves as a consolidation and transshipment point for shipments between Asia and the United States, giving customers greater access to and from markets in Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Europe. On top of the current direct flight routes to the United States, a new route to Indianapolis in Indiana has been added. For service delivery to Europe, there are regular flights to Paris, France via Narita. The new hub continues to fulfill its role handling international cargo for the Western Japan region. Its expanded 24-hour operation will allow the facility to respond more quickly and flexibly to customer needs. The Asia Pacific region continues to play an important role in U.S. trade, with Japan, China and South Korea being three of the top ten trading partners and accounting for more than one-fifth of U.S. total trade in 2013.

FedEx Express Expands SenseAware Service in Europe

FedEx Express has announced the expansion of its SenseAware service into 14 new countries across Europe. Customers in Canada will now also benefit from expanded capabilities and availability in that country. The expansion of the SenseAware service in Europe and Canada means a matching rollout in those countries for the FedEx ShipmentWatch service. FedEx ShipmentWatch, a service of FedEx Custom Critical, leverages SenseAware for a range of sensitive shipments, including one-time and non-FedEx shipments. SenseAware combines an online application with a multi-sensor device to provide customers that ship high-value or environmentally-sensitive products with near real-time visibility, insight and collaboration across their supply chains. In addition to location monitoring, the service can also monitor temperature, light exposure, relative humidity, shock and barometric pressure. The SenseAware 2000 device supports a dry ice probe which monitors temperatures ranging from -80°C to +60°C and a cryogenic probe which can monitor shipments from -195°C to +60°C.
