  • FedEx is feeling optimistic about its ongoing U.S. Postal Service contract discussions, with an executive saying Thursday she thinks the company is “days or weeks away” from knowing if it will reach a deal with the major air cargo customer.
  • “We have made significant progress in negotiations for a new contract that aligns with our ongoing network transformation plan, while providing the USPS with the operational reliability and outstanding service we have delivered for them for more than two decades,” EVP and Chief Customer Officer Brie Carere said in an earnings call.
  • The carriers’ current agreement, which expires on Sept. 29, has FedEx Express provide airport-to-airport transportation services for the agency within the U.S. However, the Postal Service has been steadily shrinking its package volume transported via FedEx.
