FedEx Cross Border
In 2007, FedEx Cross Border was founded as Bongo International, a package-forwarding service for international consumers who wanted to purchase items from U.S.-based websites that did not offer international shipping. Today, the company has five distribution centers — in the United Kingdom, Belgium, and Peru, and one each on the U.S. East and West coasts — and customers across the globe.
The company also recognized a need to address the merchant side of the global e-commerce equation and developed end-to-end solutions for online merchants who wanted to expand to international markets, enabling them to easily accept orders from consumers outside the U.S. and Canada.
FedEx acquired Bongo International in 2014 and rebranded it as FedEx Cross Border in 2016. FedEx Cross Border continues to offer solutions to online retailers looking to expand their business across borders and international shoppers who want to purchase from websites that don’t offer global shipping.
