FedEx Express – a subsidiary of FedEx Corp and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies – is establishing a direct commercial presence in Cambodia to meet the country’s growing international shipping demands.
With a direct presence in the country, businesses in Cambodia will gain greater access to a wider portfolio of FedEx shipping solutions, with the local service provider continuing to provide local infrastructure for ground operations.
“We see great potential for Cambodia to increase its cross-border trade and take advantage of the opportunities emerging from recent free-trade agreements such as RCEP – the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership – to boost exports.
“With enhanced access to FedEx network and solutions, Cambodian businesses will find it easier to tap newer markets as they expand both within the region and across the globe,” said Audrey Cheong, vice president, Southeast Asia Operations of FedEx Express.
Local customers will have access to a range of FedEx digital tools that make shipping easier and more efficient through the FedEx website – www.fedex.com/en-kh/home.html. These include opening a new account, tracking the status of shipments in real time, creating shipping air waybills, scheduling courier pickups and managing billing.
Additionally, FedEx will now have dedicated sales and customer service team members on the ground to interact with and provide enhanced logistics expertise to help local businesses grow their cross-border trade.
Economic recovery in Cambodia is gathering speed with exports up 20 per cent over the same period last year, reaching $27 billion during the first half of 2022.
FedEx has been facilitating trade in Cambodia since 1994, offering international shipping solutions and connectivity through local service provider TSP Express.
“Expanding our direct presence in Cambodia enables us to be closer to our customers and deliver greater support for their international shipping needs.
“With a dedicated FedEx support team offering logistics expertise and access to an extended portfolio of time-definite international shipping services, we’re making shipping easier for Cambodian customers as they look to export to more international markets,” said Hardy Diec, managing director, FedEx Express Indochina.
