    FedEx opens new Shanghai hub to meet express growth

FedEx has opened its Shanghai International Express and Cargo Hub located at Pudong International Airport as it looks to expand the reach of service.

FedEx said that the facility provides "greater connectivity and convenience to the FedEx global network and overseas markets for customers in eastern China, particularly those shipping to the US and Europe".

The new facility measures 134,000 sq m and is equipped with a dedicated customer care centrer as well as cold chain facilities.

It also boasts a fully automated sorting system, meaning it can process up to 36,000 packages and documents per hour, and has dedicated areas for China Customs and China Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine

FedEx said the facility is able to send real-time information, including flight and shipment status to customers’ mobile devices so they can arrange pick-ups accordingly and reduce logistics cost.

“The Asia Pacific region remains the growth driver of the world,” said David Cunningham, president and chief executive, FedEx Express.

“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.
