“This change is consistent with our strategy to focus on the broader e-commerce market, which the recent announcements related to our FedEx Ground network have us positioned extraordinarily well to do,” a FedEx spokesperson said.
Shares of FedEx and Amazon were down at least 1% in premarket trading. Bloomberg first reported FedEx’s decision.

Year after year, this fleet professional has found great value in both networking and meetings at NAFA I&E.
Phillip E. Russo, CAE, NAFA’s Chief Executive Officer, has left the association after more than 14 years at its helm.
“I have loved my time with NAFA,” Russo said. “I’ve made many great friends and have so many great memories.”
Russo, who led NAFA since 2005 as its Executive Director and CEO, had an employment contract that was set to expire at the end of this year. Russo and the NAFA Board of Directors agreed on an exit strategy that will permit Russo to leave before then.
Under Russo’s leadership NAFA accomplished the following:
- A rebrand which included a name change, a logo redesign, and a revision of bylaws
- Growth in annual conference sponsorship
- An increase in reserve funds
- An increase in member engagement through a fleet sustainability credential, a micro-certificate exam, extensive government affairs activities, and an online community initiative
