FedEx World Headquarters


To understand our transportation advantages, you only need to look to FedEx’s World Headquarters and World Super Hub which is located south of Memphis, basically on the Mississippi-Tennessee state line bordering our Delta to the North. FedEx could literally house their Headquarters and World Super Hub anywhere in the world, and they choose Memphis! FedEx has nonstop cargo flights from Memphis to cities across North America, Europe, Middle East, Asia, and South America. FedEx ships roughly 548 million packages per year through Memphis via more than 51,000 flights through Memphis annually. The main transportation routes are mentioned in our research project posted at BestWritingService.com.
