FedEx Express has officially opened its new Shanghai International Express and Cargo Hub located at Shanghai Pudong International Airport in China. The facility provides greater connectivity and convenience for customers in eastern China, particularly those shipping to the USA and Europe.
The cargo facility is the largest of its kind at Shanghai Pudong International Airport and applies cutting-edge technologies and innovation to enhance operational efficiency. The 134,000m² (1,440,000ft²) facility is equipped with a dedicated customer care center as well as cold chain facilities. Its fully automated sorting system is capable of processing up to 36,000 packages and documents per hour.
David L Cunningham, president and CEO, FedEx Express, said, “The Asia-Pacific region remains the growth driver of the world. This new hub adds yet another major facility to our already comprehensive regional and global network, giving our Asia-Pacific customers reliable access to international markets.”
FedEx currently has 66 weekly flights in and out of the hub with dedicated areas for China Customs and China Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine (CIQ), helping to simplify and improve the customs clearance process.
Karen M Reddington, president, Asia Pacific, FedEx Express, said, “The FedEx Shanghai Hub marks another milestone that helps support the economic growth of East China. By continuously enhancing our services and facilities, we can provide our customers an edge in the fast moving and ever-changing business environment.”
