FedEx Statement on FTA Passage


12 October 2011

FedEx applauds the passage of the free trade agreements with Korea, Panama and Colombia. These agreements will give American businesses access to customers in new markets creating jobs and economic growth in the United States.

As the largest express transportation company in the world, FedEx has more than 290,000 team members worldwide and we have seen firsthand the benefits from U.S. free trade agreements currently in force. These agreements will not only provide new market access, reduced tariffs and protections for investments but also improved customs regimes, heightened transparency and other benefits to American businesses looking to grow and reach new customers.
