FedEx adds links between Vietnam and Europe

FedEx Express has enhanced services between Vietnam and Europe with the introduction of services connecting through the FedEx Asia Pacific Hub in Guangzhou.

On 31 October, FedEx Express launched Boeing 767 Freighter services flying 4 evenings a week from Ho Chi Minh City to Guangzhou, China, providing onward connections to Europe.

The new service means European importers shipping from southern Vietnam can benefit from transit times to Europe of 2 business days.

The flights add to FedEx Express’ 5 flights to Europe, 4 morning services through the FedEx South Pacific Hub in Singapore and 1 evening flight through the Asia Pacific Hub in Guangzhou.

FedEx Express now offers 9 weekly flights from Ho Chi Minh City.

Karen Reddington, President of FedEx Express Europe, says, “The economies of south east Asia continue to present huge opportunity for European businesses, and imports between the EU and Vietnam specifically hit a staggering $53.54 billion in 2022. FedEx is enabling our customers to grasp this opportunity with these new flights, which offer a differentiated service with more capacity and faster connections.”
