Shanghai, China, June 20, 2023 – FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, announced the enhancement of its International Priority® (IP) service to improve the efficiency of goods circulation and enable customers to seize global opportunities.

Starting from June 1, 2023, FedEx will improve the transit time of FedEx International Priority® (IP) for exporters in Mainland China. With this enhancement, shipments can now be delivered to major markets and territories around the world within one to two business days*. This represents at least a one-day improvement compared to previous transit times for major markets*. By providing a day-definite delivery service that combines speed and reliability, FedEx offers customers the ability to ship urgent and critical shipments.

  • Includes FedEx door-to-door, customs-cleared services*.
  • Shipments from Mainland China to the U.S., Canada, Mexico and more than 10 markets across the Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa region (AMEA) can now be delivered within 1 to 2 business days*.
  • Shipments to major markets in Europe can be delivered within 2 business days*.

“As we have passed the turning point of the COVID-19 pandemic1, the recovery of China’s imports and exports has accelerated2. Businesses now require differentiated shipping solutions to meet the growing and changing demands of global markets,” said Eddy Chan, senior vice president of FedEx Express and president of FedEx China. “FedEx is committed to offering customers flexible and convenient shipping options that meet their diverse needs and expectations in terms of delivery speed and cost. Through leveraging our network and capacity, the enhancement of our portfolio of time-definite international shipping services enables us to better support our customers. It also helps businesses, especially small and medium-sized enterprises, connect with their customers worldwide while achieving profits and strengthening their competitiveness in the global market.”

The improvement to the IP service is FedEx latest effort to continuously optimize its portfolio of cross-border shipping services and support businesses to tap into global markets. In May, FedEx announced the reinstatement of its International Economy® (IE) service in Asia Pacific, which typically delivers within two to five business days to major destinations worldwide*. This service provides differentiated solutions for less urgent shipments. Moreover, in September 2022, FedEx expanded FedEx® International Connect Plus (FICP) to 14 markets across AMEA. This cost-effective e-commerce international shipping solution combines competitive speed with attractive prices and delivers most shipments within the region within one to three business days.
