FedEx has announced the opening of its first Advanced Capability Community (ACC) in Hyderabad, India in 2023. This move is part of the company’s broader multi-year initiative to build a more efficient and agile organization and strengthen the recruitment and development of a diverse workforce worldwide.
Each ACC will be staffed by full-time FedEx team members across different functional areas who will provide shared services to support the technological and digital requirements of the entire FedEx enterprise. The digital innovation these communities will provide will enable the company to offer even greater value in the global supply chain ecosystem.
India, with its focus on providing world-class infrastructure to build a technology-driven and knowledge-based economy, makes it an ideal location for the first ACC. The state of Telangana and its capital, Hyderabad, have been focusing on their engineering and digital enterprise talent pool to support international organizations that want to set up a presence there.
The first ACC in Hyderabad is expected to launch in the second half of 2023. This move is part of FedEx’s long-term vision to grow its Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa business while providing opportunities to develop technology for the benefit of its global customers.
“The opening of our first Advanced Capability Community in India, a critical market for FedEx, will enable us to be faster, more flexible, and secure as we innovate digitally,” said Raj Subramaniam, FedEx Corp. President and Chief Executive Officer. “FedEx is creating the world’s most flexible, efficient, and intelligent supply chain for our customers. This move supports our long-term vision to grow our business and provide opportunities to develop technology for the benefit of our global customers.”
FedEx plans to set up ACCs in different parts of the world in the future, selecting locations based on business needs and access to highly skilled talent pools. This move shows FedEx’s commitment to being a leader in the logistics industry by investing in the development of new technologies and processes to improve supply chain operations and better serve its customers.
