FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, expanded FedEx International Connect Plus to four more markets across the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa region, including Indonesia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Vietnam.
“The Philippines e-commerce industry continues to grow at a strong momentum. With the launch of FedEx International Connect Plus, we empower Filipino e-tailers of all sizes to seize cross-border opportunities, enabling them to scale up, accelerate innovation, deliver customer satisfaction and contribute to the country’s overall economic recovery,” said FedEx Express Philippines acting managing director Maribeth Espinosa.
The expansion enabled FICP to reach e-tailers across 14 markets including Australia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, mainland China, Malaysia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, the Philippines Thailand and Vietnam.
E-commerce merchants in these markets can now offer customers an international shipping solution with prices that offer value-for-money, while ensuring most shipments will be delivered between one to three business days.
The service also offers other delivery capabilities, including tracking, sending out notifications to receivers and the flexibility to change delivery options via FedEx Delivery Manager, which gives end customers more visibility, control, and convenience over their online orders.
The new service allows businesses to enjoy greater savings at competitive day-definite transits, and their customers get suitable choices by matching attractive prices with their specific delivery needs.
