Trade is Our Business
Trade is the lifeblood of the global economy, and at the very heart of what continues to make FedEx the world’s largest express transportation company. Global trade means creating opportunity and making it easier for our customers to bring their new products and services to the global market. Trade helps businesses of all sizes grow, create jobs, encourage innovation and contribute to local communities.
Every day we see examples of small businesses that sell beyond their borders, and research shows businesses that export tend to experience greater revenue growth and create more jobs than their non-exporting counterparts.
Modernizing trade rules to streamline customs and simplify regulatory processes will open up even more opportunities for businesses of all sizes to participate in the global economy.
FedEx supports the passage of the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement. TPP will simplify trade, reduce barriers and create new opportunities for small and medium sized companies. TPP will also address issues critical to the modern, digital economy, such as e-commerce and electronic data flows. By improving customs clearance in the 12 TPP countries, trade will become simpler, faster and more transparent for all our customers.
