FedEx Freight Forwarding has added five new offices in Budapest, Prague, Madrid, Milan and Antwerp

FedEx Trade Networks, an international ocean and air freight forwarder, has opened an additional five offices in the Europe, Middle East and Asia (EMEA) region as part of its expansion plan. The office openings includes operations in Budapest, Hungary; Prague, Czech Republic; Madrid, Spain; Milan, Italy; and Antwerp, Belgium.

“Budapest, Prague, Madrid and Milan are all important air hubs in Central and Southern Europe and the Port of Antwerp is one of the world’s busiest seaports,” says Fred Schardt, president and CEO of FedEx Trade Networks.

The new office openings will allow FedEx to offer enhanced global freight forwarding services and end-to-end multimodal solutions, direct access to local personnel with industry experience and expertise, and expanded regional access to services like FedEx International Direct Distribution and Global Order Logistics.

The office in Antwerp is the second FedEx Trade Networks offices to open in Belgium. The company also has an office in Brussels, which accommodates its air freight forwarding operations in the country.
