The concept for what became Federal Express came to Fred Smith while he was studying at Yale University. As a Yale undergraduate, Fred Smith writes a term paper outlining a system to accommodate urgent, time-sensitive shipments such as medicine, computer parts, and electronics. A few years later, his term paper came to life when the company he started, Federal Express, incorporated in the state of Delaware on June 24, 1971.
Federal Express officially began operations on April 17, 1973, with 389 team members. That night, 14 small aircraft took off from Memphis and delivered 186 packages to 25 U.S. cities from Rochester, New York, to Miami, Florida.
Federal Express Corporation is listed on the New York Stock Exchange with the ticker symbol FDX in 1978.
Federal Express officially adopts “FedEx” as its brand recognized as the worldwide standard for fast, reliable service in 1994.
FedEx Corp. was incorporated as FDX Corporation in the state of Delaware on October 2, 1997 to serve as the parent holding company and provide strategic direction to the FedEx portfolio of companies.
In January 2000, FDX Corporation changed its name to FedEx Corporation and re-branded all of its subsidiaries.
