FedEx Corp. announced it has expanded its FedEx First Overnight® service to more than 4,400 zip codes across the U.S. With this expansion, the service now reaches more than 32,000 zip codes for next-business-day delivery, representing 92 percent of the business population in the U.S.
“The expansion of FedEx First Overnight will help us continue to meet the growing demand of business-to-business customers requiring timely, next-day early delivery,” said David Payton, vice president of marketing at FedEx Services. “Whether it’s a healthcare company planning for an early morning surgery or a manufacturing facility in need of a critical component to prevent downtime, our customers value speed, security, and visibility, which FedEx First Overnight provides, making it easier for them to focus on managing their business.”
“FedEx First Overnight is another value-added solution that enables our global network to connect nearly every person and business in the world within one to two business days,” Payton added.
The service provides next-business-day delivery by 8 a.m., 8:30 a.m., 9 a.m., or 9:30 a.m. to most areas and by 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and now introducing 2 p.m. to additional extended areas, depending on the destination’s zip code. Shippers in the newly expanded zip codes who traditionally used FedEx Priority Overnight® can upgrade time-critical shipments to FedEx First Overnight.
