FedEx History

FedEx was founded under the name Federal Express in 1971 by current CEO Frederick W. Smith.  The company began by offering document and small package service to 25 cities via Falcon 20 jets.

The company was incorporated as the FedEx Corporation in 1997 when the company acquired Caliber Systems Inc.  This lead to a larger service offering than just express shipping.

In 2000, the company acquired Tower Group International.  In 2004, the company acquired Kinko’s and re-branded them as FedEx Kinko’s.

Today, the company operates several divisions worldwide including FedEx Ground, FedEx Express and FedEx Freight.  The company currently employs nearly 300,000 workers.

I got hired on with FedEx Freight with all these promises. Mind you I left a good companie making 85 thousand a year getting told I can make way way more as a road driver. So dummies me i take this position. Well know I on my way for bankruptcy because I am not working when I was promised and they won’t let road drivers work on there dock. So if you have any FedEx employee try to get you to go and work with FedEx well I would have second thoughts. There doc sucks all doc workers have no respect for the freight its jam the freight wear it will fit, even supervisor will tell you to do so. Upper management dontncare bout there employees allnthe y care bout is getting there vhevjs . I as an employee of FedEx frieght am not to satisfied with the way they do things and will never ship anything with them in my life.

I want to take this opportunity to comment on a previous negative post that I’d put on this page. I’d had a less than stellar experience with FedEx overall and due to the loss, I just couldn’t let the denied claim go without further pursuit. I decided to post on this page and to email upper management and I can only say that I was both overwhelmed and overjoyed by the response and subsequent outcome. I was contacted almost immediately, after sending my email, by Miss Maxie Kincade who is an Executive Management Assistant. Miss Kincade was a godsend and I truly hope FedEx realizes the treasure they have within their employment! Miss Kincade empathize with our situation and how our small community suffered from the initial product loss and denied claim. In a nutshell, we are a non-profit organization that sells paddlefish caviar. All profit from the caviar sales go into a Grant Fund that organization can apply for when they are doing improvements and additions. This program has done wonders for this community and with suffering substantial losses, we did not have any funds for grants this year. Miss Kincade was able to submit for a one time goodwill gesture reimbursement check for which we cannot be more grateful! I was literally in tears when I opened the envelope and saw the check for the full amount of our loss! In light of our original frustration with the situation that caused the loss, I cannot be more thankful for this amazing outcome. I think when you are diligent about your cause and stay persistent in trying to reach the right people in charge, the right outcome is inevitable! Sincere thanks to Maxie for her understanding of our plight and her display of genuine concern! The community of Glendive thanks you for your generosity!

This last week, i had a package that was delayed from the shipper. I had expected this package by Thursday it was a must have before the weekend, the shipper did not ship in time, and turns out it would not show until the following Monday or Tuesday. I called FedEx Customer service, and i know it was not their fault at all, but they couldn’t help. I called my local FedEx branch here in The Dalles OR, and spoke to the Senior Manager, Mrs McKinsey, she was on and off the phone with me for two days. She tracked it down and saw that it would show at their hub at 5:30am Saturday, she ended up coming in on her day off and met me at 7am to open up the truck that came in that morning. The package was supoose to be on the back of the trailer, little did we know they put it in the front ahead of thousands of packages. After about an hour, I ended up giving up and said thank you but i understood and that it would have been too much to ask for her to unload the entire truck alone. We left, and about 2 hours later i get a phone call from her, she had gone back, unloaded the truck, found the package, and by they time i was out of town, she took it one step further and delivered it to my house in her personal car. It was sitting on my door step Saturday when i got home. This was so amazing of her. I work for a company that ships and receives a lot of packages, and i will be using FedEx a lot more, because of her. This was above and beyond what anyone could ask for. Thank you so much!

A Fed Ex Truck recently backed down my driveway and ran into my car that was parked and unoccupied. The driver quickly exited the location and left the area. My gardener heard the crash from his location in front of the house, noticed the damage as he entered the driveway and even obtained pieces of white paint that came from the Fed Ex truck. I immedaitely contacted FedEx and they put me in touch with their claims people (apparently they are self insured) . They had me fill out forms,get a statement from the witness, take pictures and get two repair estimates. We provided the day and time of the accident, the exact location where it happened and a description of the driver. All the information was sent to them so they could begin their “investigation”. Four days later I received a letter indicating that they were denying the claim because they didn’t know what division of Fed Ex was responsible. They have the date,the time, the location and a description of the driver. This is a very technologically advanced company that can track things all over the world . Perhaps a day or two investigation wasn’t long enough? I am now faced with a $2,000 repair bill because an employee of Fed Ex decided to turn around on my private property, damaged my private vehicle and took off without accepting responsibility for his actions. It seems pretty easy to understand where he picked up that trait from. Nice job FedEx! You have lost a long time and loyal customer and I will spread this story to every person and business owner that I know. I will also see you in small claims court.

After reading all of the comments posted on this page, I’ve decided to share our organization’s experience. We are a Chamber of Commerce & Agriculture in a small town in Eastern Montana. There are not a lot of readily available shipping options but having used FedEx in the past, we opted to use their service. Within our Chamber of Commerce, we also sell paddlefish caviar. This organization is non-profit and we do not profit from any caviar sales either. Any proceeds from caviar sales are put into a grant fund that is open to organizations, churches, schools, etc to apply for funds to complete a project. This project benefits the entire community and not this entity. We scheduled a pick up on December 22nd, 2014 for an overnight shipment of 3 boxes containing almost 60 lbs of caviar. The driver completed the necessary airbills and we requested $8,300 of insurance. We assisted the driver by carrying the boxes to her vehicle. At that time, we noticed that there were slight snow flurries. Without any indication of concern from the driver, we returned to business as usual. That was until we received notice from the recipient that they had not received the shipment as scheduled. Upon tracking, we were able to see that our packages went from Glendive, MT to Great Falls, MT where it sat for an extensive period of time. The packages then went from Great Falls to Wolf Point, MT and from there to Memphis, TN and finally to California which was it’s final destination. Our boxes are specially made to say contents are perishable and it states that it is paddlefish caviar. Our shipments are always carefully packed with ice packs and the boxes are lined with insulation in the form of custom fit Styrofoam. Needless to say, a perishable product not being kept at the necessary temperature, is of no value once it finally reached it’s destination on December 24th. When I attempted to file a claim, I was told that the flights were grounded in Great Falls due to severe weather and therefore, regardless of whether we had insurance or not, FedEx was not responsible for an act of God. I was also told that it was my responsibility to know the route of my package(s). I don’t know how I’m supposed to know that information. All I know is that I’m sending it from Montana to California and don’t feel it’s my duty to know it’s exact route. I understand that FedEx does not have control over the weather, however, I believe there are other ways of handling these types of scenarios. They should offer refrigerated/frozen facilities at their depots for the packages that are noted as perishable so that the product does not get comprised. Or perhaps, with modern day technology, FedEx checks the depots that the customer’s packages will be heading to and ensure that there are no weather or mechanical issues that may delay their shipment. If the driver, who accepts your packages, has access to see the conditions of the depot your packages are headed to and can see major delays and/or flights grounded, then they should be responsible for denying your shipment. I would’ve respected FedEx more if they’d advised me of the impending delay, denied my pick up and we reschedule pick up when weather was permitting. Making small companies or non-profits such as ours eat the cost of lost products can make a huge financial impact on any company or in our case, the community. Losses, such as these, can be devastating to a small company. We have been so disappointed in the manner in which this claim was handled that we have chosen to never utilize FedEx again and we do quite a bit of shipping for a small organization. Please be cautious when using their service and read all the disclaimers regarding their liability.

Sent 2 packages “first overnight” on 4-13, both to Florida, which means it should have been there before 10 am today. One package makes it-going through Memphis hub. The other critical packae was for a multi-million-dollar proposal due by a dropdead date of 4-14 at dropdead time of 2:30 pm. As I write this my blood is boiling, it is 2:49 pm on 4-14 and the package is still sitting in INDIANAPOLIS-already 1 hour past the due date/time in Florida. I’ve talked to 6 different FEDEX reps from bottom to corporate and all they say is “we’re sorry, don’t know why it is still in Indianapolis, and we can see there were no weather delays. We can’t get it on a plane until late this evening, and the package MAY arrive 4-15.” (24 hours late and being thrown out by our prospective client)! Sad thing is that FEDEX doesn’t care, can’t make it right, and this will probably happen again. Their employees do not care about quality control otherwise someone should have redirected the package with their bright red tape on it that says FEDEX FIRST OVERNIGHT. I’m fed up with their entire organization.

I paid for express 2Day delivery 7 days ago. I still have not received my package, and it is the new IPhone, so I can guarantee an employee took it and my phone is long gone by now. I was being lied to every time I called. They kept telling me it was in Memphis due to “bad weather” and finally today they told me they could not find it, and they opened a claim for me. It is ridiculous how poor of a company they are. I always use UPS, and never go to Fedex. What a joke. I absolutely hate this company and the company I work for ships a lot all over the states, and we are SURE to use UPS or USPS. I hate Fedex, I cannot believe they lost my phone, and chances are that I wont be able to get another one. So if you have $500.00 that you want to lose to a shipping company, please by all means use FEDEX.

Well, it seems FedEx has history of poor service based on these comments, which are similar to my experience. Just seems they do not have the capacity to handle the demand. For them this is good, for the payi g customer this is terrible. I had an express package arrive late, no way to determine why; no knowledge until mortgage co, informs me my payment was late. Really didn’t believe, just assumed higher would result in timely service. Just discovered it didn’t happen after several calls to customer service, this is no better than uses just more costly!

We ordered a new I-Phone and had it shipped overnight air on March 7th. After 3 phone calls and many apologies, it arrived on March 16th, nine days late. Was given many excuses but no help. Think I will use UPS in the future. Nobody at Fed Ex cared. Very sad.

FedEx Home Delivery is a joke. CSA lied to me three times in one night and denied they could contact FedEx Home Delivery and then said the driver would be in my driveway any minute. never happened and I waited all day. The time lapse of departure and arrival at the Richland, Ms terminal was altered by someone after I complained that it showed the FedEx Home Delivery truck not leaving the terminal until after 2PM and another site on E bay said it was 7:44AM which is what the original departure time on FedEx site. Each time a different customer service agent sounded like they were reading a script. The first said it would be delivered by 8PM until I told her it was already 8PM and she said “oh”..

What a waste of time and too much aggravation by a company that I once thought was a good company that would at least tell it’s customers the truth and not lie while finding the root of the problem. . . .

Reading all the comments motivated me to share my experience about FedEx I was a victim of theft this pass December I provided all the information required and fedex denied my claim because the did not see where my package was scan but how can you find it if your driver never scanned it so I took it further we went and took pictures of the drop box it was placed in sent it to them and they have yet to respond to my email. They has a customer service rep by the name of Alex who basically told me we were lying and hang up the phone on me because I would not tolerate him calling me a liar why would I lie if I was the one who has to pay for these jackets yes their driver that pickup up at the Philadelphia cargo city location stole my jackets, a manager by the name of Jay promise to give us a call back after we conferenced them with North Face because they were playing the blame game his tone changed but never returned my call. its ok because I maybe have lost $400 but I still have my life and my job and if this is the type of service an injustice that FedEx has to offer their clients they stand to loose a lot more because I will never ship with them again. FedEx hire these dishonest people and protect them who is protecting us and paying us for our lost because their are LLC and only liable to pay you $100

Some months ago I ordered some 9mm pistol ammunition from a company out-of-state. FedX delivered the package but 94% of the ammo was missing; it had been stolen somewhere in the FedX chain of custody. I reported the theft to FedX and supplied them with everything they required to replace the missing bullets. As of today, nothing has been done. Unfortnately, shortly after the theft a FedX employee came to his station and killed another employee, then himself. The ammunition used was 9mm and I imagine the shower used the ammo he took from my package.
Since then, I have written directly to the Chairman of FedX, Frederick W. Smith, in hopes of recovering my ammunition or the money I spent to buy it. I sent photos of the torn box and remaining ammunition but I heard nothing. I’ll try one more time but may have to press charges. Not a good experience.

On Wednesday, March 4, 2015 at 1:43 p.m. on 108th Street between Madison and Park Avenue in New York City I watched a man wearing a FedEx jacket, standing alongside his hand-truck, toss his empty Snapple bottle into the snow on the street. (I provide the details so that you may identify this man.) Your employees are ambassadors for FedEx. This particular ambassador should be recalled. I will be using UPS and the USPS at least until I know you have a policy in place extending to your employees forbidding this kind of behavior. It is bad enough when residents treat their neighborhoods (and mine) with disrespect but to have your employees add to the problem is not acceptable.

I was appalled at a manager in your Knoxville, Tn office. I called her this morning and I have to say this has been the 10th phone call i have made wondering where my package was. It was sent out of the 17th of February and sat in Knoxville, Tn office on the 20th before we had the snow. When I talked to her this morning she told me that there were 2,000 packages that need delivery in this area and that businesses get first services and residential was the last of their deliveries on their agenda. Thanks for putting us last. When I tried to ask her other questions about the order, which yesterday they said they couldn’t even find, and she became irate and spoke to us in a very condescending way and then hung up on me. I called the vendor and told them what happened as I have never been treated so hateful by anyone that delivers packages. UPS has never once given us any trouble and I hope I never have to use your service again, and I will tell everyone I know, of my experience and how badly we were treated. Shame on your manager for treating us like we were second class citizens.

Another FedEx accident in Columbus OH. A FedEx double trailer is currently blocking over six miles of stopped traffic on I71 north in Grove City, as usual. I have to drive 50 miles a day in Columbus and see aggressive FedEx drivers all the time. Frequently, I see FedEx trucks engaged in driving that is clearly dangerous, such as excessive speed and lane switching. Think about a huge two trailer rig weaving aggressively through traffic. I see it all the time.

I will now invest in a dash cam and a rear cam so I can illustrate my comments via hard proof.
