The service, currently in Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston, gives consumers and business owners even more access to the FedEx network of convenient and trusted solutions. Increasingly, industries such as health care, life sciences, eCommerce retail, manufacturing, finance, perishables, travel and automotive are relying on same-day services.
