The new FedEx WSC also offers an innovative automated shipping service that helps improve the customer experience by streamlining the shipping and tracking process. The automated system is user-friendly and provides customers with a step-by-step guide including a scale, touch screen monitor and printer to help expedite shipping. If customers have any questions, a FedEx Service Agent will be there to assist them.

The opening of the new FedEx WSC reinforces the Company’s commitment to investing in the economic development of the country. In addition to this new FedEx WSC in San Luis Potosi, FedEx recently relocated a WSC from Industrias Avenue to Del Siglo Avenue #260, Second Section plot 3, Apple “D”.
