FedEx Gateway facility opens in Clark

CLARK FREEPORT— A 17,000 square meter state-of-the-art gateway facility of Federal Express (FedEx), a leading American logistics company, recently opened in this Freeport.

Equipped with the most modern package handling capabilities available here, FedEx Express is seen to bring a total of 800 job opportunities in Clark alone.

The $30-million cargo terminal currently supports 36 weekly flights and is considered as one of the largest facilities in the region. It could also increase the company’s sorting capabilities to 9,000 documents and parcels per hour.

According to FedEx, the said facility would also reduce delivery time to Northern Luzon by an average of two hours, and would extend the cut-off time for Northern Luzon and Cebu customers.

FedEx Vice President for Southeast Asia Operations Audrey Cheong expressed her gratitude to Clark Development Corporation (CDC) President and CEO Manuel R. Gaerlan for the support in making this milestone happen.

She also recognized the efforts of other CDC officers who played a crucial role in making the project a reality through a letter addressed to Gaerlan.

Among those who were mentioned in the letter are CDC Vice President for Business Development and Business Enhancement Group Rynah F. Ventura, CDC Assistant Vice President for Business Enhancement Department Atty. Noelle Mina D. Meneses, and CDC Assistant Vice President for Investment Promotions Divisions II Rodem R. Perez.

CDC Building and Facilities Permits Division Manager Engr. Erwin C. Bognot, CDC Public Safety Division Assistant Manager Robin Cenzon, and Andrea Gayle Co were also recognized by Cheong.

FedEx’s expansion in the Philippines is part of its long-term development in the Asia-Pacific region which aims to connect people and possibilities in and from the Philippines to the rest of the world.
