Fedex Express launches Iraq service

Federal Express Corp. on Monday said it had added Iraq to its global network, offering door-to-door pick up and delivery for shipments in and out of the cities of Baghdad, Basra and Mosul.

"Iraq has the potential to be one of the fastest growing economies and will require integrated end-to-end transportation solutions," said Hamdi Osman, regional vice president, FedEx Middle East, Indian Sub-Continent and Africa. "There is no question that the country faces a tough business climate, but nothing that can't be overcome by ensuring connectivity with other markets around the globe."

FedEx Express services in Iraq will be operated by Global Service Participant (GSP) Falcon Express Inc. The company currently provides delivery services for FedEx Express in Jordan, Lebanon, Qatar, Syria and Yemen.
