“This service enhancement is part of our initiative to provide businesses with shipping solutions that offer more value and contribute to the growth of local industries.”Kei Alan Kubota, Managing Director Operations, FedEx Express
“Local customer needs are evolving fast and we recognize their focus on new and more effective ways to expand globally through enhanced connections to their customers outside of Japan,” Kubota added.
FedEx Customers in Saitama Prefecture Keen to Expand Globally
In the Saitama Prefecture, which is located in the northern part of the Greater Tokyo area, nearly 23 percent of businesses are manufacturers and more than 10 percent are wholesalers and retailers.
A recent survey revealed that over 60% of these companies are interested in expanding internationally.
In addition, more than 40% of those who were not using cross-border eCommerce are now keen to move their businesses online.
Reliability and service quality in shipping is vital to meet their customer demands and enhance customer satisfaction.
FedEx continues to respond to shipping needs from its local customers. Earlier this year, the carrier launched shorter transit times for packages arriving in Fujisawa-city, Kanagawa Prefecture.
And late last year, FedEx also added a new intercontinental flight between Europe and Japan that improved direct connectivity and added additional lift capacity.
