FedEx Express Thailand Expands its Shipping Capacity in Asia

FedEx Express Thailand

FedEx Express, one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, will expand its shipping capacity service on three routes: Guangzhou to Hanoi, Hanoi to Bangkok and Bangkok to Osaka, adding to its regular two Purple Tail flights, starting May 31, 2022.

“We are thrilled to announce this addition to our services that will help businesses in our market grow. This expansion will provide more capacity and fit in more shipments while shortening delays and transit time. We are confident that this new flight will bring more opportunities to our customers as well as to us for businesses who are focused on expanding trade activity – particularly in markets such as Japan and Vietnam.” said Woon Tien Long, Managing Director, FedEx Express Thailand.

As part of the company’s milestone, marking 40 years of successful operations in Thailand, FedEx is expanding its shipping capacity to boost businesses and customers with greater connectivity with markets in Asia. FedEx is upgrading its freight services by adding a new inbound and outbound air cargo flight, a Boeing 767 freighter, which will fly four days weekly, allowing an increase in weekly air cargo capacity of up to 360,000 lbs. over the existing volume.

The new flights include added routes from Vietnam to Thailand and a new outbound route from Thailand to Osaka, Japan, the FedEx Express North Pacific regional hub, which will further connect shipments to Trans-Pacific (TPAC) lanes. This new flight will create greater opportunities for businesses looking to trade within these regions. FedEx customers in these markets can benefit from the capacity for more shipments and shortened transit time.

As COVID-19 restrictions ease and businesses slowly pick up, the local market has witnessed a slow but steady recovery in the foreign trade industry by up to 28% compared to the year before, according to the Trade Strategy and Policy Office, including in key markets such as Japan and markets in ASEAN.

As FedEx celebrates its 40th anniversary in Thailand this year, the company is also continuing to focus on its commitment to sustainable operations with the recent launch of its first zero-tailpipe emissions all-electric delivery vehicles.
