FedEx Express announced the launch of a new dedicated 777F route connecting FedEx World Hub in Memphis, Tenn., to South Korea with four nonstop flights a week. Because the new route combines faster service with larger cargo capacity, FedEx says it now can deliver documents and packages from the United States, Canada and select markets in Latin America to Seoul, South Korea in two to three business days.
FedEx says it has placed placed the 777F strategically into service to South Korea in order to meet growing demands across global markets and offer practical solutions for increased shipping needs.
“Korea is the seventh-largest trading partner of the U.S. in terms of two-way trade, which is expected to increase after final approval of the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement,” says Michael L. Ducker, executive vice president and chief operating officer of FedEx Express. “Flying direct to South Korea supports export trade from the U.S., Canada and select markets in Latin America and helps put our customers’ shipments from these locations into the South Korean market much faster.”
