FedEx Freight Expands Service in NAFTA Markets

October 25, 2012


FedEx Freight has enhanced its Canada and Mexico services, with expanded geographic coverage and upgrades to its shipping tools that assist customers in processing less-than-truckload (LTL) shipments.

FedEx Freight has expanded its FedEx Freight® Priority next-day service between 13 U.S. markets and Canada with the opening of the Rochester, N.Y., service center. This gateway center connects cross-border shipments to and from Toronto and Montreal. In addition, Rochester and all U.S. gateway centers for service to Canada are already compliant with the Nov. 1, 2012, Canada Border Services Agency eManifest requirement.

 In Mexico, two new service centers will enhance the FedEx Freight network. The Culiacán service center covers northwestern Mexico, which includes Mexicali and Tijuana. The Silao center provides service to the state of Guanajuato, located in the north central part of Mexico.

Other improvements now include the ability to process cross-border LTL shipments to and from Canada and Mexico through FedEx Ship Manager Software, FedEx Ship Manager® Server and FedEx Web Services. Designed to streamline the shipping process and better manage information, these electronic shipping tools help customers create customized reports and shipping labels, track the status of shipments, schedule pickups and use a shared address book for FedEx package and LTL shipments.
