Ground & supply chain services
FedEx now offers end-to-end logistics solutions, including international and domestic airexpress services, domestic ground services, warehousing and supply-chain management.
With successful acquisition of AFL and UFL, FedEx has been focusing on strengthening its domestic transportation and supply-chain capabilities to meet the demands of Indian businesses.
“In a little over a decade, India is expected to have as many as 18 mega-demand cities with a GDP surpassing US$20 billion. The internet is also propelling small towns such as Guntur in Andhra Pradesh or Choryasi in Gujarat, into the league of top rural hubs for eCommerce in India. This is why we have expanded our network to over 90% of India’s manufacturing GDP, thereby providing seamless access to Indian businesses with diverse logistics needs,” said David Canavan, Vice President, Operations, FedEx Express India.
With the integration complete, FedEx has expanded its service coverage from 4,000 postal codes to over 19,000 in India. It has strengthened its ground transportation service and it now has a fleet of over 1,000 trucks connecting cities and towns across India, leading technology and competitive pricing.
