FedEx Express has announced improvements to its international outbound express services in six Chinese cities, including Fuzhou, Xiamen, Chongqing, Chengdu, Changchun and Xi’an.  The transit time for FedEx International Priority and FedEx International Economy shipments from these cities to the US, Europe and other parts of the world will now be reduced by one working day, improving the convenience and efficiency with which customers can connect to the global marketplace, FedEx said.

“Our improved transit times will benefit customers in the six cities, helping them to optimise their supply chains and strengthen their competitive advantages in target markets,” said Eddy Chan, senior vice president, head of China, FedEx Express.

A recent study commissioned by FedEx found that Chinese SMEs that exported abroad generated an average of US$1.2 million in revenue per year and such gains are expected to continue in the short-term.
