FedEx takes over southern African carrier

FedEx Express has expanded its network in Southern Africa with the takeover of Supaswift businesses in South Africa, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland and Zambia.

The deal gives FedEx 40 facilities across the seven countries and means it can offer a suite of export, import and domestic services across Southern Africa.

Southern Africa is a key region for us, said Fred Smith, chairman, president and chief executive officer of FedEx Corp. The region offers tremendous opportunities for both local and international customers to access new markets and increase market share.
