FedEx Express has acquired the business and assets of the international express division of Israeli firm Flying Cargo Group.

We are sure that this transaction will provide even better opportunities to our loyal customers and employees.”

Bert Nappier, president of FedEx Express Europe and CEO of TNT Express says: “With ten weekly flights to and from Tel Aviv, our customers benefit from seamless connections to destinations all over the world, creating more possibilities for their businesses. In the near future, by bringing together FedEx and TNT in Israel, customers will benefit from a combined network that is stronger than ever before.”
