FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp has announced its expansion in East Africa by offering customers in Kenya direct access to more than 220 countries and territories and connecting businesses to new markets and customers across the globe.
Businesses and individuals will enjoy the benefits of FedEx customer service, enhanced sales support, and dedicated account management staffed from the new FedEx offices in Kenya.
“We see great potential for East Africa. With a rising middle class, and the growing integration of Africa’s markets, Kenya remains poised for future growth,” said Jack Muhs, Regional President of the Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa (MEISA) region at FedEx Express.
Muhs said that in spite of the setbacks from COVID-19, with Kenya’s growing young population, a dynamic private sector, highly skilled workforce, improved infrastructure, and its pivotal role in East Africa, FedEx Express remained committed to supporting economic sustainability across Kenya and the continent as a whole, connecting Kenya’s businesses with 99 percent of the world’s GDP.
