FedEx Ships 60 Championship Horses from Belgium to China

FedEx Express successfully transported 60 show jumping horses by air from Liège, Belgium, to the prestigious Longines Global Championship Tour 2014 in Shanghai, China, which was June 6-8. FedEx has also provided the return journey one week later. As the Patron and Exclusive Logistics Sponsor of the world-class show jumping event, FedEx used its extensive global transportation network to ship the horses in two FedEx MD-11 aircraft.

The horses travelled in stalls specially designed according to their weight and gender to ensure maximum in-flight comfort. With a specialized air-conditioner, the FedEx aircraft provided the jumpers with a consistent optimal temperature of 15-25 degrees Celsius throughout the duration of the flight. Throughout the journey, groomers and veterinarians cared for and closely monitored the horses to ensure they had sufficient hay and water.
