FedEx Trade Networks, the freight forwarding arm of global shipping giant FedEx Corp.  has announced new operations in Dublin as part of its ongoing expansion initiative.

The Dublin office is the first in the Republic of Ireland, the 24th in Europe, and will offer customers amplified access to major global markets and the company’s portfolio of freight forwarding solutions.

Recording strong export performance over the past two years, Ireland’s access to trade is a key factor in its sustained economic growth and the Dublin office is set to enhance connections within the region and across the world.

Strategically located close to Dublin’s Airport and port as well as its major motorways, the new office is an ideal location to launch operations. The addition of Dublin to the existing freight forwarding offices in Europe strengthens the company’s global capabilities with increased coverage across the region. 

 “With the new operation in Dublin, we can provide global shippers and businesses in the region with the local support they need,” said Christian Blain, Vice President EMEA Operations, FedEx Trade Networks. 

“Dublin is an important transport hub for the medical device, pharmaceutical, technology, aerospace and industrial sectors and offers multiple import and export options. This new office will provide customers enhanced access to the whole of Europe and increase connectivity worldwide.”
