FedEx Express has opened a new facility at Abu Dhabi International Airport as part of the global company’s continued growth in the region.
The new station, measuring 31,000 sq ft, will provide further connectivity to the FedEx regional hub in Dubai while targeting the fast-growing industrial areas in the UAE’s capital.
“In today’s dynamic business environment, speed-to-market and reliable service are the two key factors that help our customers maintain a competitive edge,” said David Ross, senior vice president operations of FedEx Express Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa.
“Our expansion in the capital further strengthens our position in addressing this need. The new facility in Abu Dhabi will also help us support the UAE Government’s vision to develop infrastructure for a diversified and sustainable economy.”
The new facility will be equipped with the latest technology capable of sorting 3,000 packages per hour.
Elsewhere, FedEx recently expanded its operations in Dubai by doubling the capacity of its Al Quoz station as well as opening a new facility in Garhoud.
FedEx also operates a facility in Jebel Ali Free Zone.
