After UPS's freight lane efficiency increase announcement merely a week ago, FedEx has just announced that they will be upgrading their next-business day delivery service. But wait, there's more! Not only is FedEx increasing their expediency on the East Coast, but is also ramping up their European efforts as well.
In addition to their announcement, FedEx will also be extending pickup hours to nearly 3,500 East Coast zip codes by 5-6 hours! Does this remind anyone of that Lending Tree commercial, "When banks compete you win"? As long as we can keep the government from regulation we should be in good shape here.
“With this service enhancement, we will deliver a superior experience and added value to European customers with a standard cut-off of up to six hours later, and delivery into key East Coast markets the next business day," said Robert Elliot, President of Europe, Middle East and the African Region Monday.
