FedEx Office, the printing and shipping service retail chain that provides an outlet for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground shipping, cites Business Intelligence that estimates the value of merchandise delivered to consumers via same-day courier service will reach $4.03 billion by 2018. As this value grows, your small business stands to benefit greatly by establishing same-day fulfillment from store to your customers’ homes.
“Continued market expansion allows FedEx SameDay City to deliver thousands of packages daily, for individuals, as well as big and small brands alike,” Philips said.
