FedEx and 7-Eleven Introduce 24/7 Self-Collection Service in Hong Kong

November 21, 2016

HONG KONG, November 21, 2016 — FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, and 7-Eleven, the largest convenience store chain in Hong Kong, today announced the introduction of FedEx 7-Eleven Self-collection Service across Hong Kong.

At no additional charge, customers and online shoppers can now enjoy greater flexibility and convenience by having the option of picking up their FedEx packages[1] at selected 7-Eleven stores of their choice at any time of the day and week[2].

To take advantage of the new service, customers simply need to reply to their FedEx pre-delivery notification message and indicate their preferred 7-Eleven location.  They will then receive an SMS message with the pick-up details[3].  Customers are required to present both the Air Waybill number and SMS message at their chosen 7-Eleven store upon pick-up.

“Increasingly, customers are asking for more flexibility, from the way they ship to the way they receive packages,” said Anthony Leung, managing director, FedEx Express, Hong Kong and Macau.  “Our retail service network expansion through 7-Eleven not only builds on our last-mile delivery capabilities, but also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to responding to the evolving needs of the market.  In addition, the new package self-collection service will bring significant value to the fast-growing e-commerce sector, as online shoppers no longer have to worry about missing their deliveries.”

“Through the strategic collaboration with FedEx, 7-Eleven makes use of our extensive store network, easy-to-access store locations and around-the-clock operations to bring value to customers,” said Rose Yeung, sales and marketing director, 7-Eleven Hong Kong and Macau.  “They can simply drop by 7-Eleven to pick-up their packages at their convenience, making their shopping experience easier and more flexible.  This is another step forward in expanding our service portfolio, which includes bill payment, ticketing, self pick-up and donation etc, making us the ultimate one-stop service solution for our customers and business.”
