The history of FedEx

Founded in 1971, FedEx was the result of an initial concept developed by Fred Smith. He wanted to start a delivery service that was capable of transporting a single parcel without using third-party services. Smith wanted to operate a single-carrier delivery service that operated its own hubs, aircraft, depots, posting stations and local delivery services. He called his company Federal Express – and the rest is history.

After a period of rapid growth, Smith moved his company from Little Rock in Arkansas to Memphis, Tennessee in 1973. At first, Federal Express was offering overnight and two-day services between 25 major U.S. cities. And by 1976, the company was delivering more than 19,000 shipments a day. By 1977, Federal Express was operating its first aircraft, and it was listed on the New York Stock Exchange a year later. The company was a true innovator, which helped to speed up its incredible rate of growth during the early 1980s. Federal Express was the world’s first delivery company to use a centralized computer system to manage its entire delivery network.

After changing its name to FedEx in 1994, the company started to expand its operations throughout Europe and Asia. Hubs were opened in France, Japan, Germany and Canada, and a series of acquisitions opened up new domestic markets in the UK and the Caribbean region.
