PITTSBURGH, August 12, 2015 – GENCO, A FedEx Company, has been recognized by Sears Holdings with a Partners in Transformation award based upon service innovation, financial performance, collaboration and exceptional in-store and online experience delivered.

Sears Holdings presents its prestigious Partners in Transformation award to a select group of companies that excel in supporting the transformation of Sears Holdings through innovation around integrated retail and the Shop Your WayTM program. Of the more than 30,000 companies that work with Sears Holdings, fewer than one half of one percent (.5%) receive the award.
