Across Europe, the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa, FedEx Express currently serves hundreds of cities and markets with its intercontinental and international express services.

In the last decade, FedEx has made a number of significant strategic investments to its network and provides customers a competitive advantage via unmatched access and connections to next-day service to the U.S. and Asia Pacific. FedEx has introduced an International Economy Service from 27 of the EMEA countries to more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, an East Coast Special Service allowing later drop off times in Europe with next day delivery to the US East Coast and a direct roundtrip flight between Paris and Hong Kong allowing customers in many European markets to benefit from next day service from Asia.

The FedEx Express hub at Roissy-Charles De Gaulle airport in Paris, France, is the largest FedEx hub outside the US and the primary European gateway for packages sent by FedEx customers throughout the world. The airport boasts a multi-modal logistics center with good highway linkages. The European hub at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle was granted the prestigious ISO (International Organization for Standardization) 14001:2004 certification for environmental management. The certification recognizes that FedEx operations are managed in a resourceful and responsible manner, while minimizing the environmental impact.

In 2010, FedEx Express in Germany moved its Central & Eastern European hub from Frankfurt to Cologne. The new hub is a vital link in the FedEx worldwide network, acting as a central gateway for packages arriving by ground or air from Central and Eastern Europe and providing fast connectivity within Europe, to the U.S. and Asia. The state-of-the-art, environmentally-friendly facility features a solar power system with the capacity to produce more than 1,790,000 kilowatt hours of electricity each year. This project is FedEx Express largest solar power roof-top installation in terms of area on roof space (approximately 16,000 m²).

Always seeking to broaden its access inside as well as between countries, FedEx has over the past years made a number of strategic acquisitions in Europe. In 2006 FedEx acquired ANC, a domestic express company in the United Kingdom. The company, now rebranded as FedEx UK, enables FedEx to serve the entire UK domestic market. In April 2007, FedEx acquired the Hungarian express company Flying-Cargo Hungary Kft. More recently, in 2012, FedEx purchased TATEX, a French business-to-business express transportation company and Opek, a courier company in Poland, providing FedEx with additional intra-European capabilities in two of the largest geographies on the continent. FedEx also continues to invest in long-term growth and prosperity in India. Following the acquisition of PAFEX in 2006, one of the country’s largest domestic express companies, in 2011 FedEx Express acquired the logistics, distribution and express businesses of AFL Pvt. Ltd. and its affiliate Unifreight India Pvt. Ltd. This acquisition enhanced FedEx Express leadership position in the Indian Express market.

With increased channels and capabilities for timely transportation around the world and within the EMEA, FedEx continues to record the best customer satisfaction scores in the industry.
