FedEx Adds XL to its Pak Options in Asia
TAIPEI, August 22, 2011 —FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, today announced the launch of a new Extra Large Pak (XL Pak) in 15 major Asia Pacific markets including Australia, China, Guam, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam.
The new FedEx XL Pak is 90 percent larger than a FedEx Large Pak, and can be used for both document and non-document shipments, such as garment samples and e-commerce shipments. The XL Pak allows customers to make larger shipments while enjoying cost-efficient FedEx International Priority Pak rates. The XL Paks are available free of charge when customers ship with FedEx.
“FedEx always aims to provide our customers with flexible shipping options to accommodate their diverse requirements,” David L. Cunningham Jr., president, Asia Pacific, FedEx Express. ”With this Extra Large Pak, customers now have a new option at their disposal when they plan their packaging and shipping”.
The XL Pak is made of recyclable polyethylene and contains a minimum of 15% post-industrial recycled content. For more than a decade, FedEx has worked to minimize the environmental impact of the packaging wherever possible by using recycled content and maximizing recyclability while encouraging customers to use materials efficiently and recycle materials whenever possible. The XL Pak is the latest demonstration of this commitment.
 IP Pak rates do not apply to IP services where XL Paks weigh more than 2.5kg. IP Pak rates also do not apply to International Economy services.
