TOLUCA, MEXICO — The uncertain future of the Mexico truck pilot program is of no concern to FedEx, as the transport company revealed plans to open up shop in Mexico.
FedEx Express – a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. – has introduced FedEx Express Nacional, a domestic next-business-day service that provides express shipping solutions across Mexico. This follows the Company’s domestic service launches in China, India and the U.K., and is the first FedEx domestic service offering in Latin America.
"We are responding to an opportunity in the market for a domestic service in Mexico," said Juan N. Cento, president of FedEx Express, Latin America and Caribbean Division. "Adding domestic service to our broad portfolio of international products increases our ability to further facilitate commerce for customers doing business in Mexico, demonstrating our continued commitment to the market and our confidence in its future growth."
FedEx Express Nacional will begin operations on Oct. 6. The operational hubs for FedEx Express Nacional will be located in Toluca and in San Luis Potos.
