Supporting Customers, including SMEs since 1983
Since 1983, FedEx has invested in Thai businesses and communities while working hard to strengthen its support for local small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with enhanced services and a robust network. The company has facilitated an improved customer experience by offering more automated ways of shipping through services like FedEx Ship Manager™.
FedEx has also strengthened its e-commerce offerings by expanding the international day-definite delivery service FedEx International Connect Plus (FICP), and enhanced digital tools which allow users to submit custom documents electronically through FedEx Electronic Trade Documents (ETD), and FedEx Billing Online (FBO) to improve the overall shipping experience in terms of speed and efficiency.

The company is also continuing its long-term commitment to support local communities through its FedEx Cares initiatives such as a collaboration with World Vision Foundation of Thailand, and the FedEx Express/Junior Achievement International Trade Challenge (ITC) Asia Pacific, a youth entrepreneurship education program.
