FedEx Early Retirements = Opportunity for Shippers

If you haven’t done a Transportation Request for Proposal (RFP) in the last 18 months, NOW is the OPTIMAL opportunity.
In recent times, the global transportation industry has faced unprecedented challenges, with even industry giants like FedEx feeling the impact. The recent decision to lay off pilots and the reported downturn in business serve as a stark reminder of the need for strategic interventions to weather the storm.
FedEx is attempting to push 400 senior crew members to early retirement ASAP. An additional 200 to 300 pilots could become redundant late this year if the company loses a large chunk of work for the U.S. Postal Service. Average daily parcel volume for FedEx Express declined 2% and global average daily freight pounds fell 18% YoY (year over year) in the quarter ended Nov 30, 2023.
FedEx needs and wants YOUR business NOW!
