FedEx Recognized as a Leading Company in Asia


HONG KONG, October 30, 2009 – FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE:FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, takes the lead again among international express companies operating in Asia. FedEx ranks 23rd among multinationals in The Wall Street Journal Asia 200 survey of Asia’s most admired companies, 20 spots ahead of the closest industry player on the list.

The survey lists the top 200 multinationals operating in Asia and Asia-headquartered corporations, based on the five attributes of company reputation, quality of products and services, management’s long-term vision, innovativeness in responding to customer needs, and financial soundness. Participating in the survey were 2,622 executives in 12 Asian countries.

The annual survey of Asia’s 200 most admired companies has been conducted since 1993, and FedEx has consistently been recognized among the leading multinationals operating in Asia.

“We are honored to be recognized by executives for quality performance in the Asia Pacific region,” said David Cunningham, Jr., president of FedEx Express Asia Pacific. “Service is the core component of our business and it is good to have a barometer like The Wall Street Journal Asia 200 to gauge where we stand in the region.”

Eddy Chan, senior vice president, FedEx Express China, and Yue Jing Jing, a FedEx Express courier, represented FedEx at The Wall Street Journal Asia award ceremony in Beijing. “Our success as a company is due to our People-Service-Profit philosophy,” said Chan. “Our customer-facing employees like Yue Jing Jing are the reason we are able to provide quality service. If we treat our employees well, they in turn will take care of our customers, and this ultimately means good business for the company.”
