FedEx Express is linking up with FedEx Ground to speed up residential deliveries as e-commerce continues to grow rapidly.
From March, FedEx Express packages will be delivered by FedEx Ground if they are residential deliveries, for which the latter can meet service commitments.
The service will be rolled out in Greensboro, North Carolina, and will include other markets in phases throughout the remainder of the year.
Raj Subramaniam, president and chief operating officer of FedEx, said the move makes residential deliveries more efficient, enables the company to stay ahead of e-commerce growth and lower costs.
“This allows FedEx Express to continue to do what it does best – delivering business-to-business and premium business-to-consumer time-sensitive packages,” Subramaniam said.
