FedEx Express UK strengthens its commitment to SMEs

Launch of dedicated program to help SMEs grow

FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, is further strengthening its commitment to small and medium sized enterprises in the UK by launching a special program to help them tap into global trade opportunities.

The program, called “Ship and Save”, allows customers to access global trade with just a few quick and easy steps. New customers open an online account tied to their credit card that allows them to receive shipping quotes within moments and a 30% discount as soon as their first international shipment is made*. The concept behind the program is simple: “the more you ship the more you earn.” The initial 30% discount applies for a period of three months, thereafter customers can save up to 45%**.

SMEs make up more than 99.9% of all private sector businesses across the UK, generating a combined turnover of £1,500 billion***, and represent one of the most powerful sources of industrial growth, entrepreneurial skills, innovation and employment in the country.

The “Ship and Save” program offers a high level of security for each and every online transaction offered by FedEx in the UK and worldwide.

* Excluded Services and Products are: FedEx Europe First, FedEx International First, and FedEx 10kg Box and FedEx 25kg Box sent by FedEx International Priority.

** The discount calculation is based on a rolling average of gross transportation charges in the previous three months.  More information is available on www.fedex.com/uk/shipandsave/index.html
