FedEx Trade Networks today announced the opening of a new office based in Penang, Malaysia.
“With our network stretching into Malaysia, we are well positioned to proactively respond to customer needs and support them in simplifying the complexities of international shipping,” said Udo Lange, executive vice president and COO, FedEx Trade Networks.
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.
