FedEx gives UAE cus­tomers faster ac­cess to Viet­nam with new Hanoi ser­vice

The new route will de­liver sig­nif­i­cant re­duc­tions in tran­sit time of goods

Aviation Business - - RADAR -

FedEx Ex­press is en­hanc­ing its ser­vices into and out of the Viet­namese cap­i­tal, Hanoi, with the in­tro­duc­tion of a new flight con­nect­ing the city to the FedEx Hub in Guangzhou, China.

This new route will sig­nif­i­cantly im­prove tran­sit times to two busi­ness days be­tween the UAE and Viet­nam.

“Viet­nam is a grow­ing trade part­ner for the UAE, and with our new con­nec­tion to Hanoi we are able to of­fer our cus­tomers even more ac­cess to the coun­try’s thriv­ing econ­omy,” said Jack Muhs, re­gional pres­i­dent, FedEx Ex­press Mid­dle East, In­dian Sub­con­ti­nent and Africa (MEISA).

“FedEx has served Viet­nam since 1994 and was the first in­ter­na­tional ex­press trans­porta­tion com­pany to op­er­ate its own flights into and out of the coun­try,” he added.

“As one of the world’s fastest-grow­ing economies, Viet­nam is ex­pe­ri­enc­ing a rapid de­vel­op­ment within the man­u­fac­tur­ing and high-tech in­dus­tries, a surge in e-com­merce, and a grow­ing de­mand for health­care ser­vices and prod­ucts. This new flight will give our cus­tomers quicker, more con­ve­nient ser­vice be­tween the UAE and Viet­nam.”

In 2009, the UAE and Viet­nam signed trade agree­ments, which led to to­tal trade be­tween the two coun­tries reach­ing close to the $9 bil­lion in 2017.

With in­creased ac­cess to Viet­nam through the new Hanoi-Guangzhou FedEx Ex­press link, which op­er­ates four times a week, busi­nesses in the UAE will have the op­por­tu­nity to send and re­ceive ship­ments more con­ve­niently than ever be­fore.

Tran­sit time will be re­duced by two busi­ness days.
