“We’re committed to supporting our customers with more shipping options to Latin America to meet their growing business needs,” said John Gazitua, managing director, FedEx Trade Networks, Latin America-Caribbean region. “Mexico and Brazil are two strong examples of key markets for the automotive, aircraft and electronic industries and we are very focused on providing total end-to-end international freight forwarding solutions and greater market access in the area.”
