FedEx Express has officially launched its new Johor Station, a one-stop logistics facility aimed to enhance connectivity of southern Malaysia region to the world.

The warehouse, measuring 2,676 sq m, is an integrated warehouse and sorting facility that is more than twice the size of the previous station. The facility is capable of handling up to 1,100 packages per hour.

The Johor Station will be supported by 51 vehicles (including vans and 40-footer trucks) travelling through over 43 routes in Johor Bahru, Batu Pahat and Kluang. The facility will also be manned by 90 team members focused on facilitating international priority and economy shipments, high-value freight and dangerous goods including electronics and manufactured components for various industries such as automotive and marine.

With the inclusion of Johor, FedEx now has 13 stations across Malaysia in the states of Negeri Sembilan, Perak, Pahang, Penang, Sabah, Sarawak, Selangor and the federal territory of Kuala Lumpur.

Mark Shorney, Vice President of Operations, FedEx Express South East Asia, said, “This station caters to our customers’ wide-ranging logistics requirements, delivering both cost and service advantages that leverage our connectivity via air and land through the Asia Road Network”

The Asia Road Network (ARN) is a 7,000 km pan-Asian, day-definite road network with door-to-door import and export road express services that provides access to over 125 cities connecting all key markets in South East Asia and China, from Singapore to Guangzhou. 

The implementation of Inland Clearance Depot via the Asia Road Network (ARN) also allows for traditional customs clearance processes to be moved from the road border to FedEx-managed inland locations to help overcome road blocks and optimise shipment delivery times.
