FedEx Express recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) with the Guangzhou Municipal Government to form an in-depth strategic collaboration.
Under the MOU, FedEx and the Guangzhou Municipal Government will fully cooperate on customs clearance, cross-border e-commerce, and the establishment of the South China Operations Center.
The two sides will jointly promote FedEx strategy and business development in Guangzhou, expand e-commerce logistic services, and support Guangzhou’s development as an international cargo hub.
The FedEx APAC Hub is located at the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport. Since its initiation in 2009 as a major hub in APAC, the facility currently operates more than 210 international flights each week.
In 2022, FedEx launched an AI-powered sorting robot at the company’s South China E-Commerce Shipment Sorting Center in Guangzhou to handle the ever-growing volumes of e-commerce-related shipments in the region. This was followed by the announcement that it would expand its Guangzhou Gateway by establishing a new South China Operations Center at Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport.
