To support electronics firms and small and medium-size businesses, FedEx Express announced a new direct service that extends cutoff times by two hours for outbound shipments from Taiwan to the U.S.

“By extending the cutoff time to 7 p.m. in major cities and industrial zones throughout Taiwan, we’re providing our customers more time to prepare and manage their exports and supply chains,” said Raj Subramaniam, senior vice president for global marketing of FedEx Services.

“With the new direct 777F service, FedEx customers will benefit from the later cutoff time for both FedEx International Priority and deferred International Economy (IE) shipments,” he added.

The new nonstop 777 service will depart Taipei to the FedEx world hub in Memphis five days a week, offering the later cutoff time for all shipments to U.S. non-west coast destinations Monday to Friday, the Tennessee-based express transportation giant, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., said.

The U.S. has remained one of Taiwan’s top three business partners for the past five years. Last year, bilateral trade between the U.S. and Taiwan reached US$67 billion with Taiwan’s year-on-year exports to the U.S. growing by 15.6 percent.

FedEx now operates eight 777F routes connecting Asia-Pacific to the U.S and Europe, in addition to this new routing from Taiwan.
