FedEx Trade Networks, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. and growing international ocean and air freight forwarder, announced its expanded global presence with three new freight forwarding offices in Europe and Asia. The new offices in Munich, Germany, Bucharest, Romania and Chengdu, China represent the latest step in the company’s ongoing global expansion plan.

“Today’s shippers need a freight forwarder with global reach,” Fred Schardt, president and CEO of FedEx Trade Networks, said. “By continuing to build our infrastructure in the world’s most critical growth markets, we are delivering on our commitment to provide what we feel is the most complete portfolio of supply chain solutions in the industry.”

Last month, FedEx Trade Networks announced that it is now offering customers three distinct ocean shipping solutions through its new ocean choices portfolio. The new offering gives customers the ability to choose and implement the ocean freight forwarding service that best fits their supply chain needs—whether the product demands flexibility or speed-to-market distribution services.

The office in Munich is the third FedEx Trade Networks office to open in Germany and the Chengdu office is the company’s tenth in China. The new operations in Bucharest mark the company’s entry into the Romanian market.

The newest operations in Munich, Bucharest and Chengdu join a growing global network of company-owned offices for FedEx Trade Networks. The company has offices all over Europe, Asia, South America and the Middle East.
