This paper discusses current efforts by the FedEx Corporation to add value for their customers and create a positive environment for their employees. The paper discusses the business plan of FedEx and the intiatives that have been undertaken by the company to improve its service. It focuses on "The Purple Promise", FedEx's corporate wide program to encourage topnotch customer service and the "6 X 6 Program".

From the Paper:

"FedEx Corporation faces many challenges in providing its customers with a value in a world that is dominated by goods and product oriented companies. Since FedEx Corporation is largely a package transportation service company, they view the package as their product. In fact, they go a step further. The Purple Promise states that the package is an extension of the customer. The package must be treated with respect.
"The Purple Promise and FedEx's 6 X 6 program are the two of the largest initiatives that the FedEx Corporation is using today to establish themselves as a leader in their class. These programs are designed to help FedEx Corporation's companies work more synergistically with one another, but, the bottom line is that these initiatives were created to offer a better service to their customers."
