Fuel a more sustainable future

FedEx Koln-BonnMEMPHIS, TN: March 21, 2017. Next month FedEx is to begin a B777 freighter flight from Liège, Belgium to Memphis as part of a round-the-world service linking Shanghai, Seattle and Anchorage.

"This new flight by FedEx Express is a tangible example of the customer benefits that the acquisition of TNT will bring," said FedEx president and CEO David Cunningham. "By combining our strengths, particularly the FedEx Express air network and TNT's strong European road capabilities and Liège hub, we will connect even more people and possibilities,"

The company said TNT customers shipping to North America will see improved service benefits including two-day delivery rather than up to four days; three-day transit times from points in the Middle-East, Africa and India; pre-noon delivery of express parcels; four-five day transit times for deferred shipments; higher weight limits for express and deferred shipments; and reduced cost and increased capacity for customers in the U.S. Pacific Northwest.

TNT CEO David Binks added: "North America, and the U.S. in particular, is Europe's major trading partner. The introduction of a direct FedEx Express flight reinforces the role of the TNT hub in Liège as a significant operation for the group, complementing the FedEx Express hubs at Paris Charles-de-Gaulle and Cologne."

For its third quarter ending February 28, FedEx reported net income of US$638 million on revenue of US$15 billion.
