Freight FedEx Express opens new Shanghai Cargo hub
FedEx Express has announced the official opening of its new FedEx Shanghai International Express and Cargo Hub located at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.
The facility should provide greater connectivity and convenience to the FedEx global network and overseas markets for customers in eastern China, particularly those shipping to the US and Europe. The Shanghai Hub is the largest of its kind at Shanghai Pudong International Airport. The 134,000 square-meter facility is equipped with a dedicated Customer Care Center as well as cold chain facilities.
“The Asia Pacific region remains the growth driver of the world,” said David L. Cunningham, Jr., president and CEO, FedEx Express. “This new Hub adds yet another major facility to our already comprehensive regional and global network, giving our Asia Pacific customers reliable access to international markets.”
FedEx currently has 66 weekly flights in and out of the Hub. With a fully automated sorting system, the new facility can process up to 36,000 packages and documents per hour.
The FedEx Shanghai International Express and Cargo Hub reinforces the city’s position as one of the world’s leading international shipping centers, which has ranked among the top three in the world for ten consecutive years with a cargo and mail throughput of 3.8356 million tons in 2017.
