FedEx recognized for its continuous efforts to deliver high quality services and facilitate regulatory compliance in customs clearance in Hong Kong
Hong Kong SAR, China, 16 November 2023 — FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, has been awarded the Elite Enterprise Partnership Award by the HKSAR Customs and Excise Department for the second consecutive year. The award recognizes FedEx for its proactive co-operation and contributions to Hong Kong Customs.
This award highlights the close co-operation and connection between Customs and different sectors of the logistics industry, strengthening the role of Hong Kong as an international transport and logistics hub.
“We are honored to be recognized once again with the Elite Enterprise Partnership Award. It is a testament to the company’s commitment to delivering outstanding services for our valued customers,” said Anthony Leung, managing director, Hong Kong and Macau of FedEx Express. “We have been constantly innovating our products and services to adapt to the changing trade facilitation measures that help foster the city’s economic development. Moving forward, we will continue to collaborate closely with Hong Kong Customs to support the mission of safeguarding Hong Kong’s gate and facilitating legitimate trade, while also reinforcing Hong Kong as an international hub for transportation and logistics.”
FedEx has been working with different partners to support e-commerce and cross-border trade. The company has been accredited as an Authorized Economic Tier 2 Operator (AEO) in Hong Kong since 2014, which allows FedEx to enjoy appropriate incentives including reduced inspections and prioritized customs clearance, and cover areas including premises, cargo and business partners’ securities that help deliver fast and reliable services to customers while complying with applicable rules and regulations in the markets.
Additionally, FedEx continues to enhance its operational capabilities and innovate its products to deliver high quality services with enhanced efficiency. Earlier this year, FedEx launched its One-Stop Logistics Service in Hong Kong to ensure a hassle-free logistics process for businesses by providing them with reliable and tailor-made solutions at a competitive price. FedEx also upgraded several services that support cross-border shipments including the international day definite, e-commerce shipping service FedEx® International Connect Plus (FICP) and the integration of WhatsApp into FedEx Delivery Manager International (FDMi), which provides customizable delivery options and alerts.
