FedEx provides the efficient access that businesses of all sizes need to succeed, build prosperous communities and raise living standards worldwide. Just ask a British mother who redesigned a simple handbag. In just three years this FedEx customer turned her product into a $3.3 million global business called Cambridge Satchel Company. Or talk to the founder of OtterBox, a company that makes protective cases for mobile devices.

Superior Networks Deliver Game-Changing Solutions

Our customers’ expectations and needs evolve constantly, and so must we. The Roman statesman Marcus Aurelius summed it up best: “Nothing happens without change.” That’s why our operating companies relentlessly adjust their networks to meet traffic flows and levels. Each network is discrete so it can optimize its business without compromise. Hence our competitive advantage of speed and flexibility: FedEx Express, FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight are superior networks with industry-leading service levels. Superior networks translate into superior solutions for customers. That’s real value.

We committed to a strong performance, and we delivered — no small feat, given the year’s challenges. Our earnings per share increased, and annual revenues exceeded $42 billion, a 9 percent increase, despite political gridlock in the United States, financial turmoil in Europe, a slowing Asian economy and volatile fuel prices.

How to Renew America’s Economy

fws-blog-march-2012.jpg This country – and much of the world economy – is in a backwards slide that must be reversed. Many leaders in corporate America today, including me, have ideas on the biggest challenges we face and the best solutions. I shared my own views on this recently with the National Association for Business Economics in Washington, D.C., of which our Chief Economist Gene Huang is president.

To revitalize our economy and build opportunity for current and future generations, we must:
• Reduce our reliance on imported petroleum;
• Combat overregulation; and
• Revitalize business through tax reform, education and training.
