FedEx expands services in Middle East region
FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corporation, the world’s largest transportation company, has brought the world closer to its customers in the Middle East and North Africa by introducing its service to Libya and Algeria through a network of Global Service Participants (GSPs).
FedEx is now able to connect Libya with the rest of the world. The company’s role as one of the world’s leading drivers of international trade will be a significant asset to Libya and its business community as the country works towards developing its economy and opening its market to the rest of the world.
Algeria is an increasingly attractive centre for business. In addition to its rich natural resources the country’s strategic location on the Northern Coast of Africa makes it a major gateway to the African continent. It is also the seventh largest reserve of natural gas in the world and is the second largest gas exporter.
“This move is the latest in a series of initiatives to further improve our services to FedEx customers in the region. Our investment in Algeria and Libya is a demonstration of our commitment to the region and also of our confidence in the economic development of these countries”, said Hamdi Osman, Vice President, FedEx Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa.
FedEx will work with Al Zajel Express as its Global Service Participant (GSP) in Libya and will provide FedEx International Priority Service (IP) and FedEx 10Kg and 25Kg Box services with standard door-to-door, time definite and customs clearance service support. Four offices have already been established by the GSP in the major Libyan cities to support customers across the country.
In Algeria, FedEx Express services will be provided by Global Service Participant (GSP) Falcon Express Inc, who already handles delivery services for FedEx Express in Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, Syria and Yemen.
Following the FedEx growth and investment in Kuwait and Bahrain, the new openings in Libya and Algeria further enhance the FedEx network in the Middle East and North Africa region. More customers in this part of the world can now benefit from the FedEx experience.
