Tennessee-based logistics company FedEx Corporation announced that its subsidiary FedEx Ground will deliver to residential locations seven days a week, starting in January 2020. This move will allow businesses to keep up with the upward trend of parcel shipments from e-commerce initiatives.
To date, retailers are shipping parcels of various sizes from socks to big screen TVs. FedEx’s operational facility investment in accommodating large package deliveries will help to alleviate bottlenecks.
“Expanding our operations to include Sunday residential deliveries further increases our ability to meet the demands of e-commerce shippers and online shoppers.”
– FedEx President and COO Raj Subramaniam
