The Conference of Asia Pacific Express Carriers (CAPEC), was formed in 2000 (incorporated in 2002) to represent the interests of the world’s leading integrated express delivery service companies: DHL, FedEx, TNT, and UPS. These companies focus on fast, reliable, door-to-door delivery of high-tech, high value-added goods. CAPEC members provide customers with real-time information to ensure the customers’ ability to control their supply chains.
