ACE air cargo express hub Changi Airport Group FedEx Singapore Changi Airport


FedEx Express has confirmed that it is the previously un-named express company that is partnering with the Changi Airport Group as the key anchor tenant of the new Air Cargo Express (ACE) Hub at Singapore Changi Airport. The ACE was first announced by CAG in late-January but did not name the express company. The confirmation that the US express giant is building its new FedEx Singapore Regional Hub within the ACE facility confirms a Payload Asia report in early April that FedEx was the likely tenant. The 26,264 sq metre integrated facility is FedEx’s second largest operations facility in the Asia Pacific region after the Asia Pacific hub located in Guangzhou, southern China. Slated for completion in the second half of 2012, the FedEx Singapore Regional Hub will integrate delivery, pick-up and air operations under one roof. Located within Changi Airport’s free trade zone and beside the Airport Logistics Park of Singapore (ALPS), it will boast a five-belt sort system with capacity to sort up to 9,000 packages per hour and house over 250 delivery vans. It will also include airside infrastructure such as two new aircraft parking bays, as well as a special on-site facilitation by the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority and Singapore Customs for efficient cargo clearance. The facility will complement the operations at FedEx Asia Pacific hub, which remains the center point of the FedEx AsiaOne network connecting the region.
