FedEx left SBIA

Sad news about the effects of the global crisis continues. I saw on the early news of ABS-CBN show “Umagang Kay Ganda” was the shutting down of FedEx operation in the Philippines. It started operation in the country on May 1995 and with its closure after 13 long years of operation resulted to 700 Filipinos jobless. Sigh!!!

FedEx’s last flight took off from the Subic Bay International Airport (SBIA) early today (Friday) ending earlier its contract which supposed to end on 2010. The world’s largest air-cargo shipper left its 300,000-square foot facility at the Subic free port and relocates its Asia-Pacific hub operations to Guangzhou, China.

This closure is one of the biggest lost among the working population of the Filipinos and now the government is now facing another batch of unemployed Filipinos.
