posted on 28th June 2019 by Justin Burns

FedEx Logistics – a subsidiary of FedEx Corp – has renamed Manton Air-Sea Pty Ltd – an Australian freight forwarding and 3PL company it acquired in October 2018 – as FedEx Logistics (Australia) Pty Ltd.

FedEx Logistics Australia, which is headquartered in Sydney and has locations in Melbourne and Brisbane, offers the entire suite of FedEx Logistics global logistics services.

The company said the newly renamed company gives customers access to key trade lanes, allowing them to both build their supply chains within Australia and connect to vital consumer markets throughout Southeast Asia and beyond.

Growth industries like healthcare, automotive, aerospace, industrial, retail, e-commerce and other high-tech fields are among key targets for FedEx Logistics Australia.

In addition to ocean and air freight forwarding, the company also offers less-than-container load (LCL) capabilities, warehousing and distribution, customs brokerage, and trade consulting services to customise solutions to meet customers’ global trade needs.

As part of the FedEx portfolio, FedEx Logistics Australia also collaborates extensively with the broader FedEx enterprise in the region, including FedEx Express.

“Australia is an attractive market, a country with healthy growth and a key connection point for all of the services we offer across the Asia Pacific region,” said Richard W. Smith, president and CEO of FedEx Logistics.

“We at FedEx Logistics are proud to join our colleagues from FedEx Express and TNT – a FedEx company founded in Australia – in providing our customers a world class portfolio of domestic and international freight, parcel and logistics solutions.”
