FedEx has re-launched its services in Libya, according to a report from TradeArabia.
Takween Airfreight Services has become a licensed Federal Express Global Service Provider (GSP), responsible for offering a range of FedEx services to customers in Libya including import, export and customs clearance.
David Ross, senior vice president of FedEx Express, said:
"Libya has great growth potential as the economy stabilizes in the post-revolution era. Its growth is not only being spurred by the oil and gas sector, but also by other industries such as trade and construction."
“As a big contributor to international trade, FedEx will significantly support Libya and its business community, enhancing flexibility and speed to market.”
FedEx has been active in Africa since the early 1990s, through a network of Global Service Providers. The new agreement with Takween allows FedEx to utilize the service provider’s existing infrastructure, systems and resources, to meet customers’ growing shipping needs.
