FedEx Express has launched four flights a week between Sydney and Singapore to meet customer demand for capacity, particularly for heavyweight shipments.
Australian customers will benefit from increased capacity and reliability to transport retail freight, healthcare products, perishables and lithium ion batteries between the markets.
Customers in Sydney will have a three-hour cut-off time for outbound shipments to Singapore and Malaysia from Tuesday to Friday, with cut-off times closer to close-of-business hours.
The new flights offer International Priority Freight and International Economy Freight services for imports into Australia from Singapore, China, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia and Vietnam.
Customers will also be able to use the FedEx International Priority Direct Distribution service for import shipments into Australia from Vietnam and Indonesia.
FedEx Express Australasia vice president, Peter Langley says: “This new flight shows our continued commitment to help connect Australian businesses, large and small, to new possibilities through the strengths and reach of our combined domestic and international networks.
“Australian products have garnered a strong reputation internationally and we are seeing growing demands for a range of Australian goods, including perishable and healthcare products. This flight is going to benefit Australian businesses in accessing markets both within and outside Asia Pacific.”
