FedEx Corp Australian subsidiaries FedEx Express and TNT have merged into one company called FedEx Express Australia.
“Customers are already benefitting from the strength of the combined entity with expanded service offerings and strong connectivity to meet both the domestic and international needs of Australian businesses including small and medium enterprises,” says Peter Langley, Vice President, FedEx Express Australasia.
“I see this transformation as a new chapter in the story for both FedEx and TNT brands,” Peter says. “TNT has always had a strong presence domestically in Australia and FedEx is well known as an international service provider. This coming together means we can continue to provide increased access for Australian SMEs, which make up 61 per cent of all exporters in the country and support them to reach out to new international markets. Even with the challenges of COVID-19, the number of exporters continues to increase and is up seven per cent year-on-year, driven by an 11 per cent growth in small exporters.”
This integration is part of a wider global process of integration between the companies after FedEx acquired the Dutch-owned TNT Express in 2016. The product and service portfolios for FedEx and TNT will remain unchanged and there will be no change to customers’ existing FedEx or TNT accounts.
“We’re now in a better position than ever to support Australian SMEs in their business recovery efforts as we move forward post the pandemic disruption,” added Peter.
