FedEx Express Launches Direct Services in Egypt
FedEx Express has announced its strategic transformation in the Egyptian market by offering its services directly in Egypt to meet the growing demand for international air freight services in the country.
FedEx Express has been facilitating business in Egypt since 1994, providing international delivery solutions and services through local service providers, most notably Egypt Express since 1998.
Its direct presence in Egypt will help local companies and customers from different sectors facilitate their business operations, providing extensive international coverage to and from more than 220 different countries and regions covered by FedEx, while Egypt Express continues to provide local infrastructure for ground delivery services.
Egypt's exports in 2021 rose to $31 billion, reaching the highest level in history.
Jack Meuse, FedEx Express Regional President for the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa, said: "We are now closer to our customers than ever before, providing direct communication with a dedicated fedEx support team, a vast range of international services, and advanced digital solutions to meet the demands of our customers around the world.
"Egypt's GDP reached nearly $406 billion in 2021. Thanks to positive developments in Egypt's logistics sector, many companies have announced their intention to move or expand their production lines within Egypt, providing many business opportunities for shipping companies such as FedEx.
"Egypt Express will continue to support FedEx by providing its state-of-the-art infrastructure at egypt's newly opened 13,000-square-meter cargo center within Cairo International Airport, operating 51 retail locations in 25 provinces, and using more than 360 vehicles to serve the company's operations in Egypt."
