FedEx Express’ new international express logistics facility at Milan-Malpensa airport is now fully operational. The site is 376,000 sq ft in size and is set to increase package sorting capacity by a quarter.
“With 95 per cent of the world’s consumers living outside US borders, FedEx has prioritised its expansion in areas that drive profitable growth and in turn, break down barriers and enable our customers to reach new markets,” said David Cunningham, president and chief executive, FedEx Express. “Connecting people and possibilities translates into business prosperity, jobs, and a more efficient pipeline for goods, resulting in economic growth.”
David Binks, president, FedEx Express Europe and chief executive of TNT, said: “Expanding our operations in Malpensa is a key part of our network growth strategy, creating more capacity and enabling more business connections in Europe and around the world. This new Southern Europe gateway represents the next step in building Europe’s premier logistics network.”
