FedEx will open its first Advanced Capability Community (ACC) in India


FedEx plans to open its first Advanced Capability Community (ACC) in Hyderabad, India, in 2023. The state of Telangana and its capital, Hyderabad, has been focusing on its engineering and digital enterprise talent pool to support international organizations.

The opening is part of a broader multi-year initiative to strengthen the recruitment and development of the company’s diverse workforce worldwide and build a more efficient and agile organization.

FedEx plans to set up ACCs in different parts of the world. The locations will be selected based on business needs and access to highly skilled talent pools. Each community is planned to be staffed by full-time FedEx team members across many functional areas who will provide shared services to support the technological and digital requirements of the entire FedEx enterprise. These communities’ digital innovations will enable the company to offer greater value in the global supply chain ecosystem.

The Indian government’s focus on providing infrastructure to build a technology-driven and knowledge-based economy makes the country an ideal location for the first ACC.

“FedEx is creating the world’s most flexible, efficient, and intelligent supply chain for our customers,” said Raj Subramaniam, FedEx Corp. President and Chief Executive Officer. “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. This move supports our long-term vision to grow our Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa business as well as provide opportunities to develop technology for the benefit of our global customers.
