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.
