FedEx Express (FedEx) has expanded its Hong Kong airport facility to enable greater cargo handling capability and to strengthen its on-time delivery commitment to customers. The expansion saw the facility’s floor space expand by 37 per cent to 4,695 square meters, and the addition of new equipment, staff and storage area for more efficient cargo handling capability. A key improvement is the facility’s ability to process three freighter loads of cargo in just under 45 minutes.
“The expansion of our Hong Kong airport facility reinforces our commitment to continuously improve our customers’ experience with FedEx,” said Anthony Leung, managing director, FedEx Express Hong Kong and Macau. The improved facility now has a total of 14 trucking docks and four direct ramp access gates. New equipment includes an additional extendable conveyor belt (two in total) for loading and unloading individual packages, two new scissor lifts (five in total) for airfreight containers, and five docks for pallet shipments. FedEx also installed an additional 748 square meters of caster decks to accommodate more airfreight containers and faster movement of freight shipments directly to the ramp. To support operations of the expanded facility, FedEx increased the number of staff by five per cent and set up additional office space within the premises.
