FedEx Trade Networks says that the new office is located in Penang’s central business district, and is in a great position to take advantage of the high concentration of key industries and sectors Penang has to offer, including high tech, electronics and electrical products, industrial goods as well as aerospace, retail and e-commerce. These industries should mesh well with the portfolio of services FedEx Trade Networks offers, covering e-commerce, international air and ocean freight forwarding, surface transportation (domestic and cross-border), customs brokerage, trade and customs advisory services as well as other value-added services, including My Global Trade Data, the company’s online suite of information management tools.

“The world requires a new type of freight forwarder that understands how to turn global logistics into strategic advantages,” said Mr. Lange. “FedEx Trade Networks makes the complexities of global shipping simple, striving to provide customers with unparalleled supply chain visibility and logistics transparency to help move their businesses forward.”
