  3. 3. Brief introduction of FedEx FedEx, originally know as FederalExpress Corporation, is the first overnightexpress delivery company in the world,and the largest in the United States. Thecompany headquartered in Memphis,Tennessee. Fred Smith is the founder,chairman, president, and CEO of FedEx.
  4. 4. He got a “C” for the idea of FedEx Fred Smith had a great interest in flying, and became an amateur pilot as a teen. He entered Yale University in 1962. While attending Yale, he wrote a paper for an economics class, outlining overnight delivery service in a computer information age. Folklore suggests that he received a C for this paper, although in a later interview he claims that heFred Smith told a reporter, "I dont know what grade, probably made my usual C", while other tales suggest that his professor told him that, in order for him to get a C, the idea had to be feasible. The paper became the idea of FedEx (for years, the sample package displayed in the companys print advertisements featured a return address at Yale).
  5. 5. Ship in a way never had been done before In 1970, Smith purchased the controlling interest in anaircraft maintenance company, Ark Aviation Sales,and by1971 turned its focus to trading used jets. On June 18, 1971,Smith founded Federal Express with his $4 millioninheritance, and raised $91 million in venture capital. In1973, the company began offering service to 25 cities, and itbegan with small packages and documents and a fleet of 14Falcon 20(DA-20) jets. His focus was on developing anintegrated air-ground system, which had never been donebefore.

  8. 8. Operating units and logos FedEx is organized into operating units, each of which has its own version of the wordmark, designed by Lindon Leader of Landor Associates, of San Francisco, in 1994. [10] The Fed is always purple and the Ex is in a different color for each division and grey for the overall corporation use. The original "FedEx" logo had the Ex in orange; it is now used as the FedEx Express wordmark. The FedEx wordmark is notable for containing a hidden right-pointing arrow in the negative space between the "E" and the "X", which was achieved by designing a proprietary font, based on Univers and 8 Futura, to emphasize the arrow shape.
