FedEx rebrands Australian 3PL company after recent acquisition

FedEx Logistics has announced the renaming of Manton Air-Sea, an Australian freight forwarding and 3PL company it acquired in October 2018, as FedEx Logistics Australia.

FedEx Logistics Australia, which is headquartered in Sydney and has locations in Melbourne and Brisbane, offers the entire suite of FedEx Logistics global logistics solutions.

According to FedEx Australia, the newly renamed company gives customers access to trade lanes, allowing them to build their supply chains within Australia and connect to vital consumer markets throughout Southeast Asia and beyond.

“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. 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. We couldn’t be more excited about the possibilities FedEx Logistics Australia offers for our customers, our business and our fantastic team members both in Australia and around the world,” Richard W. Smith, President and CEO of FedEx Logistics said.

Growth industries like healthcare, automotive, aerospace, industrial, retail, e-commerce and other high-tech fields are among key targets for FedEx Logistics Australia.

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.
