Our Real Fortune is Our People

FortunePicCollage-sq.png Walk the halls of any FedEx building, and you’ll notice what makes our company unique. It’s easy to visualize what our company leaders often talk about-- that we make up a diverse melting pot of cultures, ethnicities and viewpoints.

FedEx continues to grow thanks to team members whose own experiences give us global perspective, but what’s more fascinating to me is what’s common. The language may be different, but the conversation is often the same.

FedEx has been named to the FORTUNE World’s Most Admired Companies list again this year, placing #8 and #1 in the delivery industry!

The FedEx Dream Team

...The FedEx story has always been one of pushing the limits and building new realities. Our Chairman Fred Smith recognized very early that “the information about the package is as important as the package itself”. Mr. Smith’s philosophy was embraced by a generation of outstanding leaders, who built FedEx IT to become a birthplace of ideas. When I came on board in 1993 I was quickly impressed by the supportive culture at FedEx – one in which IT was embraced as a critical part of the team.

From the earliest commercial handhelds in 1980, to equipping our vehicles with radio computers in 1984, to making package tracking available on the world’s first transactional website in 1994, we have always sought the edge of innovation...
