Fed-Ex Express opens Singapore hub

FedEx Express has officially opened its new S$97-million South Pacific Regional Hub in Singapore aiming to better support customers in the region and enhance their access to global markets.

Fed-Ex reckons the hub is the first and only express transportation facility in Singapore and the largest FedEx consolidated facility in Asia Pacific that houses air, ground and clearance operations under one roof.

Located within the Air Cargo Express Hub at Singapore Changi Airport, the 282,700 sq ft  facility is a trans-shipment point for Asia Pacific shipments in and out of Australia, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia countries such as Laos and Cambodia.

It has two new aircraft parking bays currently servicing FedEx’s 34 flights in and out of Singapore weekly. And it has a fully-automated high-speed 12-output sorting system that can sort up to 12,000 packages per hour. The hub can accommodate over 280 delivery vehicles.
