Saudi Meals Display spotlights alternatives in native F&B marketplace

FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. and the world’s largest express transportation company, is supporting the growing volume of merchandise trade across the Middle East with FedEx Regional Economy and FedEx Regional Economy Freight services. The deferred, day-definite road services offer cost-effective solutions for less urgent shipments to businesses of all sizes, within key countries across the region.

According to the World Trade Organization, the volume of exports originating from the Middle East is expected to grow by 3.5 percent in 2024, alongside a 1.2 percent increase in imports to the region. These figures indicate that local businesses need robust logistical support to manage an increasing flow of trade.

“At FedEx, we develop products and services that solve logistical challenges for our customers, specialized to fit the unique needs of the markets they operate in,” said Taarek Hinedi, vice president of FedEx Express Middle East and Africa operations. “With trade volumes growing across the region, businesses require increasingly flexible and customized shipping solutions that cater to the nature of their operations and products. By offering cost-effective shipping alternatives for less urgent deliveries, Regional Economy services empower Saudi businesses with a wider portfolio of solutions to choose from — ultimately enabling smoother and improved trade flow across the region.”

FedEx Regional Economy and FedEx Regional Economy Freight utilize the Middle East Road Network to offer seamless connectivity between Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Jordan, Kuwait, Oman, and the UAE, while ensuring the safe and secure transportation of goods using real-time track and trace services via With this service, shipments will have express clearance with competitive transit times between three to five business days for Regional Economy and four to six business days for Regional Economy Freight between key Middle East markets. 

The customs-cleared, door-to-door intra-Middle East economy road services allow businesses to save significant costs on less time-sensitive deliveries of shipments of up to 68 kg using FedEx Regional Economy, as well as shipments above 68 kg using FedEx Regional Economy Freight, without compromising reliability. 

FedEx Regional Economy services are ideal for Saudi companies operating across diverse industries, including automotive, electronics, oil and gas, fashion and retail, chemicals, e-commerce, and healthcare. These industries have different shipping requirements ranging from lightweight parcels to heavyweight shipments. Businesses can use the economy road service to ship palletized or irregular-sized goods, or goods that cannot fit in standard-size air shipping containers. 

In Saudi Arabia, FedEx also offers the Less-than-Container Load Priority service to complement its Regional Economy suite. LCL Priority adeptly combines ocean and road networks to connect the Asia Pacific with key Middle East markets, streamlining shipping operations for businesses while offering a strategic balance of speed, affordability, and efficiency.

These services are further enhanced by FedEx digital tools, which provide a range of smart logistics solutions for Saudi businesses. These include automated shipment creation and pickup scheduling functionalities, digitized trade documentation platforms, and measurement and reporting solutions that inform better decision-making.
