The Hero Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has extended its contract with FedEx Express for the company to be the tournament’s official courier and express delivery service.
In a statement today, the CPL said it will be working with FedEx to ensure all of the tournament’s equipment is safely shipped between St Kitts & Nevis, Saint Lucia, Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana.
