Executive Summary

Federal Express pioneered the modern air and ground express industry in 1971. In 1998, the corporation was created as FDX Corporation and in January 2000, became FedEx Corporation. FedEx provides a broad portfolio of transportation, e-commerce and business services to customers and businesses all over the world. FedEx maintains the highest professional and ethical standards, and has a strong commitment to safety. With over 290,000 employees in over 220 countries worldwide FedEx continually delivers exceptional services that other businesses can only hope to emulate. ("FedEx Facts")

It is with this already developed corporate structure that we have decided our strategic recommendation is to expand our business into a new division called FedEx Moves. FedEx Moves will sell portable storage “pods” to businesses and consumers, complementing our already existing freight related product line that includes FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, and FedEx Freight, the leading North American provider of regional LTL (less than truckload) freight services.

This new division will be an internal start-up that we will finance through a long-term debt issuance. We will have many advantages right from the start, a major one being the large market share which FedEx has already achieved as well as operating under the well-known and well-respected FedEx name.

We will continue to use the M-Form Cooperative structure that has been so successful for us in the past. By aligning our value chains and resources with our other existing divisions, we will be able to keep our costs low and pursue a low-cost provider strategy.
