I recently heard Michael Ducker, Executive Vice President International, Express Freight Services, FedEx speak in a panel discussion.
Ducker shared some of what might be expected in the future for delivery services.
BTW, his talk came on the day after he met President Hu when Hu was in the US meeting with Bush.
Because of recently passed laws in China, FedEx, as does other delivery services, now have access to 2nd and 3rd tier cities in China.
China, btw, has more than 100 cities with a population of 1 million or more.
FedEx recently purchased DTW Group to give FedEx 6,000 employees on the mainland.
Its business in China is now run by Chinese individuals.
Ducker quoted Edison, “Opportunities are often missed by many people because it is dressed in jeans and looks like hard work.”
FedEx is working hard in China.
Do you think they will succeed?
