Huge US operator FedEx has marked its Australian expansion with the launch of its Logistics arm, completing the rebrand of 3PL company Manton which it acquired in October 2018.

FedEx Logistics Australia is headquartered in Sydney with branches in Melbourne and Brisbane, providing ocean and air freight forwarding, less-than-container load (LCL) capabilities, warehousing and distribution, customs brokerage, and trade consulting services "to customise solutions to meet customers’ global trade needs".

"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," it says.

The launch was attended by global CEO and president Richard W. Smith, joining vice president Asia Pacific Hui Edward and Australia and New Zealand general manager Shaun Rolls to mark the occasion.  

"Great trip to Australia this week, visiting team members and officially unveiling FedEx Logistics Australia with Shaun Rolls and Hui Edward.

"FedEx Logistics is adding a whole new suite of FedEx service capabilities throughout Australasia and beyond."

In an earlier statement, Smith said: "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.

"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."
