FedEx Trade Networks, the freight forwarding division of global courier and worldwide shipping company FedEx Corp, announced expansion of its infrastructure in Latin America yesterday afternoon.
The company has opened new offices in Brazil and Mexico and made strategic alliances with regional service providers to enable service delivery across 19 countries in South and Central America.
Fred Schardt, president and CEO of FedEx Trade Networks said, “Trade volumes continue to increase in Latin America, and our expansion efforts provide customers with greater access to superior freight forwarding in these emerging markets.”
The company includes the addition of a new service in its list of infrastructure expansions: an air consolidation service between Mexico and Brazil is now available, flying between Benito Juárez International Aiport in Mexico City and São Paulo-Guarulhos International Airport in São Paulo, Brazil’s largest city and commercial centre.
FedEx’s announcement comes shortly after DHL announced the significant expansion of its Asian network, and TNT Express declared its intention to divest from China and Brazil to focus on European markets, indicating a time of rapid development and change for the freight forwarding and worldwide courier industries.
