FedEx Express, a unit of FedEx Corp., is increasing the reach of its FedEx International Priority Freight service to cover more than 130 countries and enhancing its domestic FedEx Express Freight service.

FedEx Express Freight is a time-definite, premium airfreight service for domestic and international palletized shipments weighing more than 150 lbs. It is also available for shipments exceeding normal size restrictions.

After launching an additional 64 markets in Europe, Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and the Caribbean in August 2006, FedEx International Priority Freight is now offered in more than 130 countries, Memphis-based FedEx said. FedEx's international services connect 98 percent of the world's GDP in one to three business days.

In the U.S., FedEx Express Freight shipments will now carry a time-definite, door-to-door delivery commitment in most rural areas. With this change, more than 98 percent of U.S. ZIP codes are covered by FedEx Express with door-to-door freight service backed by a money-back guarantee.

In addition, customers will now be able to ship using FedEx 1Day Freight and FedEx International Priority Freight service between Oahu, Hawaii, and mainland U.S. and more than 130 countries and territories worldwide.
