FedEx is committed to continuous improvement of its services to meet changing trends in business and trade. Last year it improved connectivity for Vietnam companies by launching a new dedicated service from Hanoi that reduces transit time by one business day.

It also began a direct A310 flight connecting the FedEx Asia-Pacific Hub in Guangzhou with India for the first time. As a result, customers shipping from Vietnam to Mumbai, New Delhi and Bangalore can enjoy Next-Business-Day document service and transit times that are up to two days faster than before for International Priority® Freight shipments
