As part of the FedEx portfolio, FedEx Logistics Australia also collaborates extensively with the broader FedEx enterprise in the region, including FedEx Express, giving customers the added benefit of direct connection to transportation networks that operate in more than 220 countries and territories around the world and connect more than 99 percent of the world’s GDP.
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.

GEODIS upgrades its AirDirect services between Europe, the United States and Asia with its own leased A330-300 full freighter aircraft. Operating between Amsterdam, London, Chicago and Hong Kong, and proudly flying under the GEODIS brand, the aircraft will also serve the China – Europe route for the peak season. The first flight will take off in September.
Marie-Christine Lombard, GEODIS’ CEO, commented, “With the continued strain on air freight capacity, we wish to ensure a more sustainable supply of air cargo space for our clients and are therefore investing in this, our own, first dedicated freighter. Our aim is to constantly find dependable solutions to secure our clients’ supply chains, which are critical to their business growth.”
The Freighter, which GEODIS is leasing for several years, will be integrated into the GEODIS AirDirect global schedule. Initially, it will fly three times per week between Amsterdam/London and Chicago and will additionally be deployed on weekly rotations connecting Amsterdam and Hong Kong. GEODIS is offering the entire range of its air freight products–GEODIS AirFast, AirSave and AirFlex–on the AirDirect flights.

“Our AirDirect service has operated more than 650 air charter flights so far across Asia, Europe, North and Latin America in order to secure capacity for our customer shipments worldwide. The experience gained from these operations has led to the decision to charter our own GEODIS Freighter.
