FedEx subsidiary FedEx Trade Networks, the company’s global trade subsidiary, said this week it has opened three new U.S.-based offices in Phoenix, St. Louis, and Milwaukee as part of an ongoing expansion effort.

Company officials said these new offices will provide shippers with air and ocean freight forwarding and customer brokerage services and value-added services such as online shipment visibility with My Global Trade Data, purchase order management via Global Order Logistics, surface transportation, warehousing, distribution and a variety of multimodal services.

A FedEx spokesperson told LM that this expansion was driven by customer demand.

“We are always looking for ways to serve our customers better, which includes opening in new markets to meet our customers’ growing needs,” the spokesperson said.

And the spokesperson also noted that these new locations provide shippers with enhanced support and options, explaining that the addition of the new locations provides customers with access to a wider variety of solutions and routing options. Customers can benefit from the company’s enhanced ability to build innovative, end-to-end solutions supported by logistics professionals with industry and local market expertise, the spokesperson also explained.

“The launch of FedEx Trade Networks in these new locations allows the company to meet customers’ needs and offers seamless support across other FedEx operating companies in these regions,” said the spokesperson.

The FedEx Trade Networks U.S. infrastructure includes more than 45 service locations, with multiple facilities in some locations.
