Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, Federal Express (aka FedEx) is one of the largest private shipping companies in the world. In fact, it was the world’s very first overnight delivery service! Today, their core competency continues to be overnight shipping and urgent delivery. On average, FedEx ships about 13 million documents and packages spanning 220 countries on a single day. That’s pretty good for a company once saved from the brink of bankruptcy with blackjack winnings!

Overview:

Generally speaking, FedEx should be the shipping carrier you choose if you’re looking for speed. Their speciality is overnight shipping, urgent delivery, and shipping perishable items. FedEx tends to be on the pricier side. However, they are undoubtedly your best option if you’re in a pinch to get something delivered ASAP. They also offer next-flight out shipping 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, if you ever find yourself in an emergency shipping scenario.

    I live across the street from a FedEx office so all I do is walk over, and it’s super convenient. They’ve done everything for me there from printing photos, binding documents, and shipping letters/packages overnight. The prices are kind of high for overnight shipping but it’s always reliable!

    Can’t tell you how many times FedEx has saved me when I needed something delivered overnight.
