FedEx expands forwarding business

FedEx is expanding its forwarding business in the UK with a new operation in Glasgow.

FedEx Trade Networks has been expanding rapidly and now has more than 130 offices in 25 countries.


Glasgow is the third office to open in the United Kingdom and has been chosen for its access to Glasgow and Prestwick airports, as well as Greenock and Grangemouth ocean terminals. Its  other UK offices are in London and Manchester.

“With the new operation in Glasgow, we can provide global shippers and businesses in the region with the local support they need,” said Fred Schardt, CEO and president of FedEx Trade Networks.

“Glasgow is an important transport hub for the textile, automotive and technology sectors and its port structure and network of road and railways offer multiple import and export options. This new office will provide customers enhanced access to the whole of Europe and increase connectivity worldwide.”

FedEx Trade Networks specialises in a variety of multi-modal and value-added services.
