LONDON, Sept. 17, 2007 – FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company, today announced the re-branding of its recently-acquired UK domestic express company, ANC. From today, ANC will be known as FedEx UK and the new brand will be rolled out across all assets and uniforms by autumn next year.

“Since acquiring ANC in December last year, our management teams have been working together to ensure the benefits of the acquisition are passed on to customers of both organisations. Today’s unveiling of the new brand is an exciting step in fully embracing the FedEx UK staff and operations into the broader FedEx family,” said Robert W. Elliott, president, FedEx Express, Europe, Middle-East, Indian sub-continent and Africa.

“Today marks a major and symbolic milestone in our corporate history and one that everyone at FedEx UK warmly welcomes. At the end of the re-branding in the autumn of 2008, about 2,000 vehicles and 3,000 uniformed employees and contractors will proudly carry the new FedEx UK livery,” said FedEx UK CEO, Michael Holt.

Under its new brand, FedEx UK will continue to provide an outstanding range of comprehensive domestic distribution and logistics services with an established national pick-up and delivery network.
