“Being recognized as the ‘Logistics Provider of the Year’ reflects our FedEx team members’ unwavering dedication and resilience. At the heart of our success lies a culture that values innovation, sustainability, and above all, connects people and possibilities. It’s this ethos that drives us to support businesses and to provide innovative solutions that connect our customers to the world,” said Taarek Hinedi, vice president of FedEx Express Middle East and Africa operations.
Addressing the rising demand for cross-border trade in the Middle East, FedEx launched its Regional Economy services for parcel and freight connectivity via the Middle East Road Network. The company also enhanced its FedEx International Priority® service transit times for quicker access to major markets across the globe.
