FedEx Express, one of the world’s largest express service providers, launched a new flight on Wednesday connecting Ha Noi with the FedEx Asia-Pacific Hub in Guangzhou, China.

According to the managing director of FedEx Express Indochina, Hardy Diec, the new service will improve transit times for all inbound flights to Ha Noi and for the first time, enable next business day delivery within Asia.

The flight, using B-757 freighter planes, will operate four times per week to and from Ha Noi. Vietnamese exporters will benefit from the best transit times, which is just one business day for shipments from Ha Noi to big business centres across Asia, such as China, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines.

Shipments to Europe and North America will arrive in two business days. For all shipments to Ha Noi, the transit time is reduced to one business day, except for those from Europe and North America which will reach Ha Noi in two or three business days, respectively.

The service enhancements delivered by the new flight is expected to further support the development of businesses in Viet Nam by giving them better, faster access to global markets.

Recent research carried out by FedEx found that 58 per cent of Viet Nam’s small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are exporting to markets in the Asia-Pacific region and 80 per cent are shipping to markets beyond. The US, China, India and key European markets are the top export destinations. SME leaders are optimistic about the continued growth of exports and support from logistics partners. — VNS
