FedEx Trade Networks announced that it has selected Fritz Companies Israel T. Ltd. (Fritz Companies Israel) as its exclusive regional service provider in Israel. FedEx says that through the alliance, both companies will offer expanded international ocean and air freight forwarding services.
“We look forward to serving our customers better through our alliance with Fritz Companies Israel,” says Fred Schardt, president and chief executive officer of FedEx Trade Networks. “Their track record of exceptional customer service and longstanding knowledge of the Israeli market will allow us to continue offering the most flexible and reliable freight forwarding solutions in the industry.”
Since 2008, U.S.-based FedEx Trade Networks has opened 26 company-owned offices throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America as a part of its ongoing global expansion plan. In countries where it does not operate directly, the company has formed alliances with select RSPs to support its ocean and air freight forwarding programs.
Fritz Companies Israel is an international freight forwarder with distribution facilities and more than 400 employees at locations throughout the country. The companies say the new alliance – which will be phased in over the coming months and is scheduled to be complete later this year – will give customers of FedEx Trade Networks additional access to the Israeli market and provide customers of Fritz Companies Israel added service and dependability.
“Our customers deserve the best, most innovative service in the industry, and we are able to offer it to them through our new alliance with FedEx Trade Networks,” says Assaf Shalev, general manager of Fritz Companies Israel.
