FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, is further enhancing its intercontinental services between Vietnam and Malaysia as well as 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.
Exporters shipping from Southern Vietnam will benefit from faster transit times for shipments to Malaysia and 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 US — four daily morning flights through the FedEx South Pacific Hub in Singapore and one current evening flight through the Asia Pacific Hub.
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.
Southeast Asia’s manufacturing hubs are growing and diversifying to include increasingly higher-value goods and services. Multilateral free trade agreements like CPTPP and RCEP are creating close-knit ties that are helping make the region an increasingly important trading partner.
“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,” said Kawal Preet, president of Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa region, FedEx Express.
