FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, announced today that self-collection services for FedEx packages are now available at all participating bluPort and Parcel Santa lockers, and Park N Parcel retail collection points strategically located throughout Singapore. This collaboration aims to enhance customer convenience, as they can now collect their packages from the extensive network of lockers and collection points island wide, available 24/7.

 

FedEx Singapore’s self-collection initiative is fueled by the rapid growth of e-commerce in the country. By 2022, Singapore’s e-commerce market forecast is expected to increase by 48% to US$7 billion. This will create a strain on the environment, with last-mile delivery and packaging causing the largest environmental impact. The new FedEx service will help to tackle these issues by increasing productivity, reducing traffic congestion and carbon footprint generated – especially when performing small parcel delivery. It also helps to ensure efficient delivery of goods to people and businesses, an objective that is in line with the Singapore government’s Urban Logistics Initiative.
