HONG KONG – Effective immediately, FedEx Express customers in Taiwan can enjoy additional time and flexibility when preparing their outbound shipments to Europe and Africa. FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, is extending the call-in cut-off time for outbound shipments from Taiwan to Europe and Africa to as late as 19:00

This service improvement is applicable to FedEx International Priority® (IP) and FedEx International Economy® (IE) shipments from Taiwan to major destinations in Europe and Africa on weekdays Europe was Taiwan’s fourth largest business partner in 2011. In the same year, Taiwan shipped goods totaling US$2.9 billion to Africa, a significant growth of 32.1% from 2010. Emerging markets in Africa were regions where Taiwan exports experienced the biggest growth in 2011.

“FedEx supports local businesses by making strategic investments to respond to customer needs,” said Michael Chu, FedEx Taiwan managing director. “Despite a challenging economic environment in Europe, Taiwan remains a strong trading partner with the EU and trade between the two markets in 2011 climbed more than 10% year-on-year.
