FedEx Express has launched a new trans-Tasman service between Christchurch, Auckland and Melbourne to provide additional capacity and shorter transit times.

The service will run five times a week from July 4 and will add to five existing Sydney to Auckland flights each week.

FedEx said: “We are delighted to inform you that effective July 4, 2022, FedEx will enhance Trans-Tasman service to improve its value proposition to customers in Australia and New Zealand. Connecting Christchurch, Auckland and Melbourne five times weekly will provide additional capacity while improving cut-off and transit times.

“This service enhancement complements our existing service between Sydney and Auckland and will enable greater penetration of express services.”

According to FedEx, the new route will better support the transport of e-commerce, healthcare, automotive, agricultural and critical spare parts shipments.

Last month, FedEx Express launched a new route between Asia and Europe, connecting Beijing to the FedEx Charles de Gaulle (CDG) Airport hub in Paris, France for the first time, with ten connections per week via Osaka, Japan.

In the fiscal year ending May 31, FedEx saw revenues increase by 11.3% year on year to $93.5bn, but has outlined expectations of ongoing supply chain disruption, a slow return of air bellyhold capacity and lower growth levels for the coming fiscal year.
