China - FedEx said its first Boeing 777 Freighter service in Shanghai is aimed at meeting growing demand in Eastern China.
The new 777F will directly connect Shanghai with the FedEx SuperHub in Memphis, Tennessee and is expected to provide customers in Shanghai, Suzhou and Kunshan with two-hour improvement in cut-off times in select areas.
"With the 777F's shorter flight times, our operational advantages give our customers a competitive advantage in the global marketplace through speed and reliability. In addition, the 777F is able to deliver these benefits while helping FedEx build a more sustainable operation in the long term through its fuel efficiency and reduced emissions," said David L Cunningham Jr, president of FedEx Express for Asia Pacific.
The 777F engine is expected reduce emissions by 18%, assisting FedEx in its goal to reduce CO2 aircraft emissions by 20% by 2020.
