FedEx EuroOneTM Network connects 40,000 European postcodes

(Brussels, April 3, 2000) Federal Express Corp. (FedEx), the world's largest express transportation company, has expanded its FedEx EuroOneTM Network that provides next day service with late collections and early deliveries. The introduction of three new intra-European flights mean that the FedEx EuroOne Network - initially launched in September 1999 to customers in major European business centres - will now be available in hundreds of key European cities, covering 40,000 postcodes.

"The opening of our new European hub at Roissy-Charles de Gaulle airport in September 1999, enabled us to simultaneously launch the FedEx EuroOne Network offering next business day services with later pick-ups and earlier delivery times between the key European markets. The response from customers has been extremely positive and due to customer demand for additional FedEx EuroOne connections we are now pleased to be able to connect thousands of additional customers to the FedEx EuroOne Network." said Robert W. Elliott, president of FedEx for the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.

"The three new flights - 2 Fokker 27s and 1 Short 360 - will noticeably improve FedEx EuroOne service levels and will connect Austria to the FedEx EuroOne Network. Customers shipping to and from France, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, Scotland, Germany, and the Netherlands will benefit most from the service enhancements", he added (see fact sheet).

With annual revenues exceeding $17 billion, FedEx Corp. is the premier global provider of transportation, logistics, e-commerce and supply chain management services. The company offers integrated business solutions through a network of subsidiaries operating independently, including: FedEx Express, the world's largest express transportation company; FedEx Ground, North America's second largest provider of small package ground delivery service; FedEx Custom Critical, the world's largest provider of expedited time-critical shipments; FedEx Global Logistics, an integrated logistics, technology and transportation-solution company; and Viking Freight, a less-than-truckload carrier operating principally in the western United States. More than a million customers are connected electronically through the FedEx information network and approximately two-thirds of its U.S. domestic transactions are now handled on-line.
