FedEx Express launched FedEx Express Nacional, a domestic next-business-day service providing express shipping solutions for businesses in Colombia’s main cities – Bogotá, Medellín, Cali, Barranquilla, Cartagena and Bucaramanga. It also serves multinationals who move goods within the country.
Earlier in 2011, FedEx Express began providing direct international service throughout Colombia, and the company says the addition of FedEx Express Nacional further extends the company’s long-term investment in this key Latin American market by broadening its portfolio of shipping options for large and small companies.
“The launch of FedEx Express Nacional demonstrates our continued commitment to Colombia and our confidence in its future growth,” says Eduardo Berrizbeitia, general manager, FedEx Express Colombia. “We are now delivering Colombian businesses the same high-quality service, reliability and unparalleled transportation expertise that FedEx provides in over 220 countries and territories around the world.”
FedEx Express says that with the launch this year of international direct service and domestic services, the company is expected to bring more than 200 new jobs to Colombia over the next two years.
