MEMPHIS, Tenn., February 18, 2015 — FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), the worldwide provider of transportation, e-commerce and business services, announces the launch of Access digital magazine app—featuring 25 ideas, trends, people, places and policies defining global opportunity and connectivity for 2015.
“At FedEx, we’re constantly monitoring changes in customer needs and analyzing economic trends across the globe.

The Access app launches with this year’s Access 25, a list of 25 people, places and ideas defining global connectivity. This year’s theme—“The Crossroads to Everywhere”—examines the intersection between virtual and physical networks via three megatrends: supercharged innovation, explosive growth and competition, and shifting economic power. This year’s edition also features a broad range of articles on topics like smart cities, unbanking, botsourcing, the circular economy and more.
“FedEx helps businesses build stronger supply chains in more than 220 countries and territories, putting us in the unique position of being able to share these stories and trends,” Subramaniam added.
In addition to the digital app and an annual print magazine, Access also features monthly online articles that celebrate the opportunities that a more connected world provides.
The Access app, available for iPad, Kindle Fire and Android devices, is a digital version of the print magazine. It offers readers more interactive features designed specifically for tablets and Android smartphones, including videos and dynamic slideshows.
