There are two new routes originating in Frankfurt, Gemany; one goes to Mexico City and Guadalajara and the other flies to São Paulo and Campinas, Brazil. Other new destinations are Hong Kong to Mexico City and Guadalajara, and Dallas to Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey.
“ Mexico and Brazil are two strong examples of key markets for the automotive, aircraft and electronic industries, and we are very focused on providing total end-to-end international freight forwarding solutions and greater market access in the area,” said John Gazitua, managing director for FedEx Trade Networks, Latin America-Caribbean region.
The Germany-to-Mexico route bridges businesses to manufacturing and high-tech hubs in Mexico. The service consolidates and moves cargo from Frankfurt International Airport to Mexico City and Guadalajara.
Frankfurt to Brazil delivers goods to São Paulo and Viracopos/Campinas. The air consolidation service also includes helping customers avoid delays by having consignees and their brokers verify shipping documents before arrival.
The Hong Kong flights go into Mexico City and Guadalajara five days a week.
The U.S.-to-Mexico trade lane also includes moving cargo from FedEx Trade Networks in Dallas to Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey airports by truck.
Additionally, in addition to airport-to-airport service, FedEx trade networks provides airport-to-door, door-to-airport and door-to-door pricing options.
This expansion is due to an increase in trade between the Asia-Pacific region and Latin America, which, FedEx reports, has grown at an average annual rate of 20 percent. Trade between the European Union and Latin America has doubled to approximately US$280 billion in the past 10 years.
