FedEx Trade Networks, an international ocean and air freight forwarder, has opened additional offices in Rotterdam, Netherlands, and Hamburg and Frankfurt, Germany. Since initiating its worldwide expansion plan in 2008, the Memphis-based freight forwarder has opened a total of 28 new freight forwarding offices throughout Asia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Latin America, in addition to more than 60 locations in the U.S. and Canada.
Rotterdam is Europe's largest container port and enables significant intra-European and intra-continental trade. Hamburg is strategically situated on the Elbe river shipping channel and is a vital transshipment center for cargo arriving from or destined for Asia.

The office in Rotterdam is the second FedEx Trade Networks office to open in the Netherlands. The company also has an office in Amsterdam, which serves as its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) headquarters and accommodates its air freight forwarding operations.
