MISSISSAUGA, Ont. - FedEx Express Canada says it has completed some key investments to boost its service in western Canada.
In Calgary, an additional 28,000 square feet of warehouse space has been added, which the company says will allow for faster package sorting and earlier on-road deliveries in the downtown area.
Total cargo space in the city now totals almost 105,000 square feet.
FedEx says it has also added a new wide-bodied Airbus 310 for daily service between Winnipeg and the FedEx World Hub in Memphis, TN.
The courier company said Thursday that it will begin a new daily express flight to Nanaimo Airport in British Columbia next month.
FedEx says businesses and online shoppers will benefit from extended pick-up and drop-off windows in Nanaimo, Port Alberni, Campbell River, Courtenay, Comox, Sooke, Western Plaines and surrounding areas.
Lisa Lisson, president of FedEx Express Canada says the improvements are driven by demand for FedEx Express services, including next-day shipping, deferred delivery, large-consignment air freight and other factors.
