FedEx Ground is switching to a six-day-a-week delivery schedule year-round, as the demands of e-commerce push integrators toward 24/7 operations.
Delivery service will go seven-day during the holiday season, when FedEx expects a significant increase in e-commerce demand throughout its network. New facilities and advanced technology paved the way for six-day operations, FedEx executive vice president Rajesh Subramaniam said Wednesday.
The move to a year-round, six-day week comes as Amazon pushes the boundaries of deliveries service at FedEx, UPS, and the US Postal Service (USPS).
