Abstract:
Since its inception in 1971, FedEx, the world's leading express transportation company, has focused on its core business of express delivery. Although, the growing international trade and increasing demand for custom-made services have driven various dominant players like DHL, UPS and TNT to establish themselves as a ‘one-stop shop’ for all the logistics requirements of their customers, FedEx has limited itself to the small package and light freight markets. This policy of the company has raised doubts about the prudence of its decision.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To highlight the changing trends in the global express parcel delivery industry
  • To discuss the rationale behind FedEx's decision to stay tuned only to its core business.
