FedEx Express has revealed that its new international gateway to Southern Europe at Milan-Malpensa airport is now fully operational. The new 35,000 sq m express logistics facility is claimed to be set to boost package sorting capacity by 25% thanks to new technology within the facility.
“Expanding our operations in Malpensa is a key part of our network growth strategy, creating more capacity and enabling more business connections in Europe and around the world,” said David Binks, president, FedEx Express Europe and CEO of TNT. “This new Southern Europe gateway represents the next step in building Europe’s premier logistics network,” he said.
Malpensa became the primary FedEx gateway in 1992. In the last 12 months the number of shipments sent via FedEx from Italy to the rest of the world has grown by double digits, according to Binks.
