FedEx conceived the idea of an international network more than a decade ago when it purchased, in 1984, a courier company called Gelco that had offices in Europe and Asia. In 1987, FedEx set up the first Asia Pacific regional office in Hawaii, establishing a link between the U.S. and its Asian customers. A year later, FedEx began its first direct, scheduled cargo service to Japan.

In 1989, FedEx purchased Flying Tigers, a famous all-cargo airline with flying rights to 21 countries. For the first time, FedEx had governmental permission to carry documents, packages and freight to multiple Asian destinations on a regular schedule.

As Asia's economies began to grow and prosper, FedEx's presence in the marketplace and its shipment volumes began to grow too. In recognition of this increasingly important source of revenue, FedEx moved its Pacific headquarters from Hawaii to Hong Kong in 1992.

The increasing demand for time-definite transportation within the region led FedEx to develop a combination of deliveries via its own aircraft and on commercial aircraft — while "standard service" for most other express companies in Asia relied exclusively on the use of passenger airlines.

FedEx's success in meeting customers' needs has resulted in more flights in an innovative unparalleled network called AsiaOne. Launched in September 1995, AsiaOne provided overnight intra-Asian delivery between 11 major Asian centers each and every business day. The AsiaOne network was expanded to 17 Asian destinations in 1998.

In September 1996, FedEx connected Beijing and Shanghai directly with the AsiaOne network through the Asia Pacific Hub in Subic Bay. Direct flights using FedEx's own A310 aircraft between Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific Hub also began in September 1996. Cebu and Jakarta were connected in April 1998, and Sydney was linked in September 1998.

Two new routings were introduced in September 1997 as part of FedEx's service enhancements. The super express freighter (Super X) offers shippers in southeast Asia markets and in western Japan the only overnight delivery to all of the U.S. by 10:30am next-business-day, and by next day to Canada and Mexico City. The routing features the longest flight in the industry, flying 12 hours non-stop from Osaka, Japan to Memphis, Tennessee, originating in Penang and transiting through Singapore. In the same month, FedEx announced the first cargo flight to span the globe. The 'Round-the-World' flight originates in Indianapolis, Indiana, and continues to Paris, France and Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to service Middle Eastern countries. It then continues to Mumbai, India, Bangkok, Thailand and Subic Bay in the Philippines to serve Asia Pacific customers before returning to the US through Anchorage, Alaska. The Round-the-World flight links Europe and the Middle East to Asia. It also marks the inclusion of Bangkok into the AsiaOne network.
