The express shipping company known as Federal Express originated in Little Rock Arkansas, in August of the year 1971, (although official flights did not see the light of day until April 1973) by founder Frederick W. Smith. The idea was simple; get time-sensitive packages where they needed to be, on time.

The success that was garnered when Federal Express took to the airways, has yet to be duplicated, but is often imitated. Federal Express expanded its airways from United States based shipping into Europe and Asia in 1984, and into Japan in 1988. One of its major acquisitions in 1994 was Tiger International Inc. and in that same year Federal Express officially changed its name to FedEx. In 1985 FedEx became one of the first United States based shipping companies to service China. FedEx has its main hub locations throughout the US, including California, New Jersey, Texas, Indiana and Alaska.

FedEx has a “people first” ideology, with a belief that inclusion “drives engagement”, and to give back to the communities that they serve is one of its goals. FedEx has a 49% United States minority workforce, along with a 28% minority-driven management team.

FedEx has 5 regions of service. the U.S., Canada, Latin America and Caribbean (LAC), Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East, India Subcontinent and Africa (MEISA). All in all, some 220 countries around the world. FedEx handles more that 7 million customs transactions on an annual basis. Shipping specifications of imports and exports are by way of air, ground and ocean.

In 2019 FedEx was recognized by the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)with the 2019 NBIC Corporation for Inclusion Best of the Best Award. President and COO of FedEx Corporation Raj Subramaniam said, “FedEx is a global company that is as diverse as the world we serve.” This award is given to corporations that demonstrate diversity with people of color, LGBTQ people, women and people with disabilities.

One of the first aspects that is noticeable about FedEx is that it leaves behind a small footprint, while making a big impact on the world. Through their “Reduce, Replace, Revolutionize” initiative, FedEx has been able to sustain in the changing times. This will be accomplished by three points. First, by lessening the impact the footprint has on the ecosystem. Second by improving productivity within the company. And third, by revolutionizing the company as a whole with more efficient solutions. One way this is taking place is by FedEx reducing the level CO2 emissions in 2019 and in California specifically by adding electric vehicles.
