Iveco and FedEx partnership
Iveco has become a partner of FedEx Express, the world’s largest express air delivery company. Sixty new Iveco Daily vehicles in FedEx livery will enter into service in Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland, the UK and Ireland over the next few months.
The commercial vehicles selected are the 35S12 van model with the classic configuration for courier delivery, and are fitted with a partition, sliding door and shelving system.
After carefully evaluating all of the major competitors, FedEx selected the Iveco Daily for its distribution fleet after evaluating a number of its advantages, namely the cab ergonomics and the high number of load compartment configurations.
“We are really delighted to have become suppliers of one of the world leaders in the Mail & Parcel sector, not least because FedEx selected our vehicles after subjecting us to a strict evaluation process that all their potential suppliers have to go through,” commented Iveco International Key Accounts and Used Vehicles Manager Ottavio Gioglio.
FedEx Express supplies a fast and reliable delivery service in more than 220 geographic areas with an integrated land-air transport network.
Iveco designs, manufactures, and markets a broad range of light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles, off-road trucks, city and intercity buses and coaches as well as special vehicles for applications such as fire fighting, off-road missions, defence and civil protection.
Iveco employs over 24,500 people and runs 27 production units in 16 Countries in the world using excellent technologies developed in 5 research centres. Besides Europe, the company operates in China, Russia, Turkey, Australia, Argentina, Brazil, and South Africa. More than 4,600 service outlets in over 100 Countries guarantee technical support wherever in the world an Iveco vehicle is at work.
