South America: A Warm Business Climate

South America is a huge market with a combined population of 400 million, including 6 of the world’s 50 largest cities: Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, Lima, Bogota and Santiago. Widespread, rapid economic development makes South America an attractive target for international growth.

U.S. free trade agreements or bilateral trade councils with most countries — along with a move toward a common market — create a welcoming environment for U.S. companies in need of trading partners. If you want new customers or suppliers, head south. 

With FedEx® international shipping services behind you, you can expand your business to South America.
