FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp has announced that the company now provides a one-stop solution for dangerous good shipments to further enhance connectivity of the southern Malaysian region to the world.
The one-stop center will be available at the Senai Gateway in Johor and aims to offer customers the convenience of an end-to-end shipping experience.
Shipments are packed, labelled and shipped via FedEx. All dangerous goods for this service are accepted, except those categorised under class 1 explosives and class 7 radioactive materials.
Usage of the service will require the dangerous goods to be in full compliance with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) dangerous goods requirements prior to shipment via the International Priority (IP) and International Priority Freight (IPF).
“This facility has proven to be timely, as we are also playing our part in managing dangerous goods shipment for essential items such as hand sanitisers, in view of the Covid-19 pandemic. We also see this enhanced service as a way to support firms of all sizes, from micro-SMEs to large enterprises, as they expand their international footprint,” said SC Chong, managing director of FedEx Express Malaysia.
The Senai Gateway which is the second newest facility by FedEx in Johor, following the Johor Station in Iskandar Puteri, will also be providing a one-day transit time improvement for TNT inbound worldwide shipments to Johor and a one-day transit time improvement for TNT Economy Express shipments on the Asia Road Network from Thailand to Johor.
