FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp, has expanded coverage for its FedEx International Priority DirectDistribution (IPD)and FedEx International Economy DirectDistribution (IED) services from Asia Pacific to countries in the European Union (EU).

In addition to its existing routes from Asia Pacific to Europe, FedEx now has 12 additional lanes for international priority direct distribution and 47 additional lanes for international economy direct distribution, extending both services from 13 major Asia-Pacific markets including Viet Nam to all 28 EU countries.

IPD and IED services simplify and speed up cross-border deliveries between Asia Pacific and EU, enabling businesses, especially SMEs, to deliver goods to their customers faster.

The enhanced connectivity facilitates easy, efficient shipping for customers in Asia Pacific to send multiple packages from a single location in an origin country to multiple recipients in an EU country.

“Trade between the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) countries accounts for 55 per cent of all world merchandise trade. As trade relations between Europe and Asia strengthens, this is an excellent opportunity for greater bilateral trade,” said Karen Reddington, president, Asia Pacific, FedEx Express.

“As customer requirements for cross-border access increase, the expanded coverage of IPD and IED services will enable our Asia Pacific customers to capture global opportunities and tap new possibilities.”

IPD Single Point of Clearance (SPOC) and IED Single Point of Clearance (SPOC) services are also available for Asia Pacific businesses to send multiple packages under the same master airway bill from a single location in an origin country to multiple recipients in multiple destinations among the 28 EU countries. – VNS
