Guangzhou to Graceland

FedEx Express has launched a new route which, for the first time, connects the FedEx APAC Hub in Guangzhou, China and the FedEx World Hub in Memphis, Tennessee.

In a statement issued yesterday (18 April), the company said that a FedEx Express MD-11 freighter is currently being used for the new route but it will be replaced with a B-777 freighter in May to meet increasing shipping demand. The new route has five flights per week from Tuesday to Saturday.

In April, the flight departing from Guangzhou stops in Osaka, Japan and Anchorage, Alaska. Beginning in May, the flight from Guangzhou will stop in Osaka before flying directly to Memphis. From Tuesday to Friday, the flight returning from Memphis stops in Indianapolis, Indiana, U.S.A. and Anchorage before flying directly to Guangzhou, while the Saturday flight stops in Honolulu, Hawaii, U.S.A. and Anchorage.

“As our business continues to develop across the Asia Pacific region, we constantly adjust our network and routings to better meet dynamic market needs,” said Karen Reddington, president, Asia Pacific, FedEx Express.

“Adding volume and a faster, more direct connection to our Memphis World Hub will give Asia Pacific businesses a stronger competitive advantage in connecting to customers in North America and beyond.“

Early this year, FedEx Express officially opened its FedEx Shanghai International Express and Cargo Hub, the second international hub in China. Currently, FedEx operates more than 250 flights per week in China, with more than 160 of these flights going through the FedEx APAC Hub.
