Visit of the FEDEX European Hub, the largest FedEx Express hub outside of the US! 

FedEx has operated out of Roissy-Charles de Gaulle for 16 years, making it the central hub for FedEx in EMEA and the principle sorting and distribution center within the region.

Several compelling reasons prompted FedEx to select Roissy-Charles de Gaulle as its European hub, including logistical support offered to businesses by national and local government and the quality of the infrastructures.  

This world-class facility enables FedEx to increase its sorting capacity and offer enhanced products and services to companies across Europe, linking them to the global marketplace.



The FedEx European Hub visit is organized in partnership with the Hubstart Paris Region Alliance, a network of public and private organizations who facilitate the settlement and growth of international companies in the Paris CDG Airport Area, around Paris-Charles de Gaulle and Paris-Le Bourget airports.
