FedEx Express:  

New Nordic Gateway at Copenhagen Airport


FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. and the world’s largest express transportation company, opened its new gateway facility at Copenhagen Airport in January 2016. The new facility serves as a gateway for inbound and outbound shipments for Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

“The Nordic gateway will bring our Nordic customers even closer to the rest of the world. By combining courier, customs clearance, sortation and aircraft operations in a single location, we will further enhance operations in the Nordics. I am delighted that we are fully operational just over a year after we announced this investment,” says David Canavan, senior vice president, Operations, FedEx Express Europe.

“The gateway’s location at Copenhagen Airport is ideal because of its strong freight transport infrastructure and proximity to Sweden,” Canavan adds.
The Nordics region—Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden—has experienced steady economic growth in recent times, leading to an average forecasted GDP growth of 2% in 2016. This upward trend is also reflected in FedEx Express shipping data.
“Ideally positioned between North America and the Middle East, Copenhagen Airport has gained status as the largest cargo hub in Northern Europe. In 2015 more than 370,000 tonnes of cargo came through the airport and with the new FedEx facility we have made room for even more cargo in the coming years. This is great news for Denmark and Copenhagen Airport,” says Thomas Woldbye, chief executive officer, Copenhagen Airports.
The new 8,000-m2 facility has a fully automated logistic system and can sort 3,300 packages per hour, process 18 weekly FedEx Express flights, 170 truck movements per week and a fleet of up to 36 pick-up and delivery vehicles. Approximately 120 FedEx Express team members will work at the site.

The facility is located in the airport´s cargo area near the Oresund Bridge to Sweden.
Invest in Denmark has been working closely with FedEx Express for many years. “FedEx benefitted from the local expertise and knowledge of Invest in Denmark and we are happy to continue our dialogue with them.” David Canavan says.
