FedEx To Expand Ground U.S. Operations To Six Days Per Week

FedEx Corp. (FDX) said that it will expand FedEx Ground U.S. operations to six days per week in response to the growing e-commerce demand and record influx of volume expected this holiday season, and beyond.

FedEx has more than 425,000 team members who stand ready to deliver for customers throughout this expected record holiday season, and to continue to provide outstanding service year-round.

FedEx said, "The rise in demand and volume at FedEx has been dramatic and consistent for more than 10 years. For example, the record volume day in the history of FedEx 10 years ago was 12 million shipments. Today, FedEx handles more than 14 million shipments on an average day."

FedEx anticipates a record amount of volume through its network again this year. In order to deliver exceptional service during this busy time, FedEx will increase hours for some existing employees, and hire for approximately 55,000 positions during the holiday season.

FedEx Ground will once again run six- and seven-day operations through the holiday season, and will continue six-day operations throughout its U.S. network year-round.
