December 20, 2011
MEMPHIS, Tenn., Dec. 20, 2011 – FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) has launched a range of new tools and expansions to the suite of FedEx Mobile applications just in time for the holidays, making shipping-on-the-go easier than ever this busy time of year.
In continuing efforts to meet the needs of its global shipping audience, the FedEx Mobile website has expanded to 206 countries and in 25 languages. Additionally, the FedEx Mobile app is now available for iPad® and AndroidTM users. With these additions, FedEx has significantly enhanced its suite of mobile solutions that already includes Mobile Shipping Label, an optimized fedex.com web experience for smartphones, and FedEx Mobile apps for the iPhone®, iPod touch and BlackBerry® smartphones.
“The way our customers work is changing and the way they need to interact with FedEx continues to evolve,” said T. Michael Glenn, executive vice president of Market Development at FedEx. “Our customers have asked for more convenient and simple ways to ship FedEx packages and these mobile expansions address those needs. The recent FedEx Mobile expansions are the latest in a line of web-based and mobile device solutions from FedEx that enable our customers to stay connected and efficient while on the road, particularly during the busy holiday season.”
With the new FedEx smartphone solutions and expansions, it’s even easier for customers to ship gifts and packages to loved ones. With FedEx Mobile, customers can:
