FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corporation-an American multinational delivery services company-has announced its expansion into East Africa by setting up an office in Kenya.
FedEx Express customers in the country will now enjoy the benefits of its customer service, enhanced sales support and dedicated account management staffed from the new FedEx offices in Kenya.
Also, businesses and individuals in Kenya can now access the company’s international coverage to and from more than 220 countries and territories and a wider service portfolio, connecting businesses to new markets and customers across the globe.
“We see great potential for East Africa. With a rising middle class, and the growing integration of Africa’s markets, Kenya remains poised for future growth,” said Jack Muhs, Regional President of the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa (MEISA) region at FedEx Express.
Muhs said that in spite of the setbacks from COVID-19, with Kenya’s growing young population, a dynamic private sector, highly skilled workforce, improved infrastructure, and its pivotal role in East Africa, the logistics startup remained committed to supporting economic sustainability across Kenya and the continent as a whole, connecting Kenya’s businesses with 99% of the world’s GDP.
Muh added: “FedEx continues to adapt to the changing world around us, and are ready to support the reopening of trade within Africa, and across the globe, supporting economic sustainability across the continent.
“The safety of our team members and customers remains our top priority.
“FedEx is committed to delivering critical supplies to health care providers and communities in need, as Kenya and countries around the world respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.”
