FedEx Unit Inks New Agreement With Postal Service

FedEx (NYSE: FDX  ) is extending its partnership with the mail and package delivery wing of the government. The company announced that its FedEx Express subsidiary has signed a new air-transportation contract with the U.S. Postal Service that effectively prolongs the two organizations' existing agreement for another seven years.

FedEx said the contract is valued at roughly $10.5 billion. It obligates FedEx Express to provide airport-to-airport transportation of the Postal Service's express and priority mail offerings.

The current contract ends in September; the just-signed accord will come in force the following month.

In the press release announcing the new agreement, the company quoted FedEx Express CEO David Bronczek as saying that it "provides enhanced value and additional flexibility allowing the USPS to respond to possible changes."
