FedEx is the Tiger Woods of the Transportation
Like the FedEx Cup leader, clearly the Tiger Woods of the industry.
Not a recommendation of its stock, but the recognition of a fundamentally strong business model, FedEx has provided a 10.7% annual return to its share holders for the last 20 years. And whether you are an employee who has contributed weekly or an investor with a more advanced investment strategy, FedEx is now operationally diversified enough, with a broad seasoned management team that follows proven strategies and processes and large enough market share to be considered by many as an economic bellwether.
Started in 1971 by Fred Smith in Little Rock, Arkansas; later moved to Memphis, Tennessee in 1973 after airport officials would not provide facilities (wonder where they work at now), FedEx is a leading logistics provider with annual revenues over $35 billion.
As reported by Standard amp; Poor's, FedEx Corp. provides global time-definite air express services for packages, documents and freight in more than 220 countries, and ground-based delivery of small packages in North America. In addition, the company offers expedited critical shipment delivery, customs brokerage solutions, less-than-truckload (LTL) freight transportation, and customized logistics. In February 2004, FDX paid $2.4 billion in cash for Kinko's and joined three other FedEx companies: Express, Ground, and Freight.
Standard amp; Poor's further states that the company intends to leverage and extend the FedEx brand and to provide customers with seamless access to its entire portfolio of integrated transportation services. Sales and marketing activities are coordinated among operating companies and advanced information technology makes it convenient for customers to use the full range of FedEx services while providing a single point of contact for customers to access shipment tracking, customer service and invoicing information. The company intends to continue to operate independent express, ground and freight networks, but has increased its emphasis on having the individual business unit's work together to compete more effectively.
Visited last week by US Commerce Secretary Carlos Gutierrez, the secretary believes that FedEx and the American economy have been well served by globalization and any expansion of free trade into Colombia, Panama and South Korea will provide further growth for both.
FedEx most notably has expanded operations to China. First entering the country in 1984 FedEx has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in China developing the network necessary to provide time definite services to 30 Chinese cities. Like Mexico before it, FedEx understands it will take time to grow talent and develop the relationships necessary for long term success in China; a country with 18,000 registered logistics providers and not a single provider with more than 2% of the market.
Not only one of the top ten "Best Employers" in Asia Pacific (China, Korea, Japan) as listed by Hewitt Associates in 2020, FedEx was named "The Best Company for Women" by the US Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong and the China Morning Post. Closer to home, FedEx has appeared 7 years straight on Forbes top 10 lists of the most "Admired Companies" both in the world and in America.
Standard amp; Poor's reports FY 08 (May) revenues rising about 7%, following 9% growth in FY 07 and although they see the U.S. economy slowing; they still view the global economic outlook as supportive of growth in shipping demand. Expect about 8% volume growth in the Ground Division, revenues increasing about 3% with 1% volume growth and 5% revenue growth at Express; led by international, with domestic express volumes and revenues likely to fall about 1%. Standard amp; Poor's further estimates international revenues will continue to rise in double digits, driven primarily by export activity out of China.
Ed Wolfe of Bear Stearns is projecting a gain of $45 million in revenue from the reorganization of DHL; a subsidiary of Deutsche Post World Net(ASE:DPW) who reported a 61% decrease in profits for the 4th quarter as a result of write downs in its US operations. Like DHL, UPS is also a unionized work force whose cost per package is about $.22 per package greater than FedEx.
High fuel costs will continue to be the "Achilles Heel" for FedEx and some increases in personnel costs should be expected as a result of a dispute with the IRS over the classification of its Independent Contractors. As an offset, FedEx will continue to move lower margin freight to less expensive ground assets.
Understanding that fuel will always be an issue, FedEx is lowering costs by replacing B727's with Boeing 757's which carry a 20% greater payload and use 36% less fuel. Additionally they are expanding an existing hybrid fleet, utilizing a new fuel efficient Sprinter Truck when appropriate and exploiting solar technology, beginning at the new Oakland, CA facility.
I am certain that Fred Smith is pleased with the overall expansion of FedEx over the years and proud of the value added services it provides its customers, employees and associates. He is number 390 on the Forbes list of Billionaires (the only one in Memphis, TN) with personal wealth of $2.4 billion. He continues to expand market share in areas where economies are good and maintains costs where economies are soft; all the while making strategic acquisitions as they present themselves
He remains focused on the mission: "FedEx is built on the idea of service excellence - of meeting or exceeding customer expectations in everything we do. Our pledge to make every FedEx experience outstanding is one we make every day as a company and as individuals," and like Tiger Woods remains at the top of his game through diversification of service lines and expansion of an already daunting international footprint.
