FedEx Express recently announced the successful integration of its acquired AFL and UFL businesses in India. Since the acquisition in 2011, FedEx has focused on strengthening its domestic transportation and supply chain capabilities to meet the demands of Indian businesses. FedEx now offers end-to-end logistics solutions, including international and domestic air express services, domestic ground services, warehousing and supply chain management.
With the integration complete, FedEx has:
- Expanded its service coverage from 4,000 postal codes to over 19,000 in India
- Strengthened its ground transportation service: it now has a fleet of over 1,000 trucks connecting cities and towns across India, leading technology and competitive pricing
- Increased its office and hub space capacity from 300,000 to over a million square feet
- Added inventory management services via more than 900,000 square feet of warehousing space across the country
Now, customers using FedEx domestic ground services can also benefit from shipping applications that enable them to create waybills for single or multi-piece shipments. In addition, they can monitor incoming and outgoing packages, get status notifications and near real-time tracking. High volume businesses such as eCommerce are supported with robust web integration for faster processing. Industries with complex supply chain requirements (particularly hi-tech, retail, medical equipment or consumer durables) will gain a competitive advantage by using FedEx domestic ground and supply chain services.
