FedEx Launches Next-day Delivery to Brisbane

FedEx Launches Next-day Delivery to Brisbane

AUCKLAND, New Zealand, Nov. 22, 2007—FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE:FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, has announced the launch of a next-day delivery service between Auckland and Brisbane, Australia. The new service will reduce transit times for shipments to Brisbane substantially, from two business days at present to one business day, and will result in later cut-off times for pickups.

“We have introduced this service in response to the steady growth of New Zealand businesses in the Queensland market, especially those in the marine, education and health sectors,” said Rhicke Jennings, managing director, Australia and New Zealand, FedEx. “We see this new service as a further commitment to the New Zealand market, which is experiencing significant increases in shipments on the trans-Tasman lane.

“The enhanced service will provide customers with increased flexibility and greater convenience, as well as a competitive edge over businesses using other modes of delivery,” he said.

The new one-day service reinforces FedEx ongoing commitment to deliver the highest level of service to customers.
