FedEx to establish North Pacific hub in Japan


FedEx Express has unveiled plans to develop a new North Pacific (NPAC) regional hub at Kansai International Airport (KIX) in Osaka, Japan to serve as a consolidation point for shipments from North Asia to the United States, according to the Shipping Gazette. 
The new regional hub will also operate round the clock as an international gateway for western Japan. The company said in a statement the expanded facility will provide greater operational flexibility to meet its customers' needs.
The agreement with Kansai International Airport for this new 25,000 square metre facility includes customs clearance, ramp operations, sort and transshipment operations. The facility is slated to begin operations in spring, 2014. The role of the company's Asia Pacific hub in Guangzhou, China will remain unchanged.
David Cunningham, Asia Pacific president, said: "With the establishment of the FedEx NPAC regional hub we will be able to provide a superior level of service to our customers within and outside of the APAC region. I believe the new facility will play a major role in contributing to Asia's growing economy."
Shinichi Fukushima, president of Kansai International Airport added: "I know that the NPAC regional hub will have a major impact on global shipping, and we are prepared to fully support FedEx via our 24-hour operations and by offering plenty of space for further development."
