November 28, 2011
Milan, Italy, November 7, 2011 – FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, today announced the opening of a new station in Brescia. The station will offer customers located in Brescia and the surrounding province area improved connectivity reaching 90 percent of the world’s GDP within one-to- two business days through the global FedEx Express transportation network.
Brescia Province is an important regional trading center in Italy, driven by a number of core industries including mechanical and automotive engineering, iron metallurgy and transportation. Home to more than 121,400 businesses – 74 percent of which are small or medium-sized enterprises – Brescia is the fourth largest Italian Province in terms of export volume.
Enabling strong trade links to the rest of Europe and international destinations including China, the United States and Brazil, this new station will provide customers in the region with greater access to the FedEx Express global network. The station is connected via a road network to the FedEx gateway at Malpensa Airport which in turn is connected to the European hub at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle in Paris, France which acts as the gateway to the entire FedEx network.
“Brescia Province is one of Italy’s most dynamic regional trading centers, bolstered by strong mechanical engineering and financial services sectors making it a very prosperous region for the Italian economy. We are delighted to be growing our presence in this area. This new facility will enable us to offer companies of all sizes a wide range of transportation services as they seek to expand their businesses in Europe and around the globe,” said Renato Carrara, Managing Director Operations and General Manager, FedEx Express Italy.
Specifically, the new facility will enable later pick up times, making it easier for companies to take advantage of global markets. For example, companies based in Brescia that need a package delivered to a city in the East Coast of the U.S. by 3 p.m. the next day can tender their shipment as late as 5.30 p.m. the day before and have it arrive in time.
The new station will offer a wide range of FedEx Intra European and Intercontinental transportation services, including:
- FedEx Express next business day deliveries to and from Europe (EuroOne™)
- FedEx Express next business day deliveries by 3 p.m. to U.S. East Coast (FedEx International Priority®)
- FedEx Express two business day deliveries to and from Asia and the rest of the U.S. (FedEx International Priority®)
- FedEx Economy services for less urgent shipments within two-to-five business days (FedEx International Economy®)
All services are available for heavy shipments over 68 kgs as well as small parcels and documents. The new facility will be located at Via Papa Giovanni XXIII, 83/C – 25086 Rezzato (BS). The opening of the new facility will create 10 new jobs for the region.
