VGP - FedEx Express, one of the world’s largest express service providers, has enhanced its services into and out of Hanoi with the introduction of a new flight connecting the capital to the FedEx APAC Hub in Guangzhou, China.

According to the managing director of FedEx Express Indochina, Hardy Diec, the new flight will significantly improve transit times for all inbound flights to Ha Noi and enable next-day delivery within Asia for the first time.

The flight, using B-757 freighter planes will fly the route four times a week. Viet Nam exporters shipping from Ha Noi will benefit from the best transit time for shipments to major business centers in Asia, including China, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines, in just one business day.
Shipments to Europe and North America will arrive in two business days. For all shipments to Ha Noi, the transit time is reduced to one business day, except for those from Europe and North America which will reach Hanoi in two business days, and shipments from North America arrive in three business days.

The service enhancements delivered by the new flight is expected to further support the development of businesses in Viet Nam by giving them better, faster access to global markets.
In April it announced a new route connecting the FedEx APAC Hub in Guangzhou and the FedEx World Hub in Memphis. In January, it officially opened its Shanghai International Express and Cargo Hub, the second international hub in China.

Recent research carried out by FedEx found that 58% of Viet Nam’s small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are exporting to markets in the Asia-Pacific region and 80% are shipping to markets beyond. The U.S., China, India and key European markets are the top export destinations. SME leaders are optimistic about the continued growth of exports and support from logistics partners.
