Federal Express Corporation (FedEx), is an American multinational courier delivery services company. The name "FedEx" is a syllabic abbreviation of the name of the company's original air division, Federal Express, which was used from 1973 until 2000.
The company is known for its overnight shipping service, but also for pioneering a system that could track packages and provide real-time updates on package location (to help in finding lost packages), a feature that has now been implemented by most other carrier services.
In April 2015, FedEx acquired their rival firm TNT Express for $4.8 billion as it looks to expand their operations in Europe.

do ya'll prefer FedEx or UPS? I like FedEX more, but it's unfortunate that you can't pick who you want to deliver your package on Amazon and all these other sites....i would think Amazon would give you the option to chose FedEx, UPS, or DHL

Dear Creators of this channel,
I'm writing a coursework assignment on the business success story of FedEx, and this video is simply amazing. I can honestly understand the amount of work that must have gone into it. Can I please ask for a list of references that you used to put together this video? It would ease my life tremendously!

Brigham Blundell (2 years ago)
Worked in a FedEx ground facility for a few weeks. Job wasn't too bad. It required getting up at 4:30 in the morning, and lifting packages up to 150lbs, but wasn't too bad. I quit because I ended up getting a better paying job with over double the amount of hours offered by FedEx with more pay per hour. Uh who am I kidding, working at a ground facility, I'm guessing also Air, is pretty awful. Don't do it.
