FedEx Express Not to Renew US Domestic Contract with Amazon

Company sees better opportunities in wider ecommerce market

FedEx has made the strategic decision to not renew the FedEx Express US domestic contract with, Inc.

The company plans to “focus on serving the broader e-commerce market.”

FedEx will retain some Amazon business because the decision doesn’t affect existing contracts involving the courier’s other divisions such as its ground operation. International services too will remain unaffected.
