UAE customers to benefit from new route connecting Hanoi

Posted 28 August 2018 · Add Comment

FedEx Express is enhancing its services into and out of the Vietnamese capital, Hanoi, with the introduction of a new flight connecting the city to the FedEx Hub in Guangzhou, China. This new route will significantly improve transit times to two business days between the UAE and Vietnam.

 

“Vietnam is a growing trade partner for the UAE, and with our new connection to Hanoi we are able to offer our customers even more access to the country’s thriving economy,” said Jack Muhs, regional president, FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa (MEISA).

 “FedEx has served Vietnam since 1994 and was the first international express transportation company to operate its own flights into and out of the country.  As one of the world’s fastest-growing economies, Vietnam is experiencing rapid development of manufacturing and high-tech industries, a surge in e-commerce, and a growing demand for healthcare services and products.  This new flight will give our customers quicker, more convenient service between the UAE and Vietnam.

In 2009, the UAE and Vietnam signed trade agreements, which led to total trade between the two countries reaching close to US$9 billion in 2017 .  With increased access to Vietnam through the new Hanoi-Guangzhou FedEx Express link, which operates four times a week, businesses in the UAE will have the opportunity to send and receive shipments more conveniently than ever before. 

Through the FedEx Hub located in Dubai, UAE customers have access to fast and reliable delivery to more than 220 countries and territories, through an extensive global air-and-ground network.
