FedEx Express Opens New Station in Genoa
MILAN, Italy, April 30, 2012—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 Genoa. The station will offer customers located in Genoa and the surrounding area improved access and connectivity to 90 percent of the world’s GDP within one to two business days through the global FedEx Express transportation network.
The Genoa Province is an important regional trading center in Italy, home to more than 72,000 businesses and driven by key industries such as the construction sector, banking, insurance and tourism.
Enabling strong trade links to the rest of Europe and international destinations including the U.S., Russia and Turkey, 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, the gateway to the entire FedEx network.
“Genoa Province is characterized by a solid economic model showing a great dynamism, especially for female and youth entrepreneurship. 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 of Operations and general manager, FedEx Express in 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 Genoa 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 6 p.m. the day before and have it arrive in time.
Recently, FedEx Express in Italy has opened new stations in Brescia, Parma-Reggio, Monza-Brianza, Verona and Padua. Today, FedEx Express in Italy is also announcing the opening of two additional stations in Alessandria and Treviso as well as the start of a direct FedEx service in Venice.

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 Egidio Tagliolini, 42-44 – 16152 Genoa (GE). The opening of the new facility will create 9 new jobs for the region.
