FedEx was founded in 1971 by Frederick W. Smith, a Yale student who developed a business model for nationwide package transportation. Smith believed that next-day package delivery was made possible by modern technology and a network of strategically located distribution centers.

The company was originally founded as Federal Express in Little Rock, Arkansas, but moved to Memphis, Tennessee, in 1973 due to problems with airport authorities.

The beginnings of FedEx

In its early years, FedEx faced a number of challenges, including financial losses, service problems and competition from established companies. However, the company managed to overcome these challenges and become one of the world’s leading providers of transportation and logistics services.

Today, FedEx is a Courier operating in more than 220 countries and territories, with a fleet of more than 700 aircraft and 45,000 vehicles.
The company offers a wide range of services, including air, ground and ocean freight, as well as logistics and warehousing services.

Mail Boxes Barcelona Centro is a Fedex office where you can manage your international shipments with all the guarantees.

I recently had occasion to use MBE Gotic Office . I found the person who dealt with me - Jordi - very pleasant and helpful . My order was delayed a couple of times due to incorrect passport photo ( required for export to UK ) which took up more of his time than normal . He dealt with this situation in the same calm , pleasant and efficient manner .

We left our phone in a taxi in Barcelona. Unfortunately, when the driver found it, we were already back in the US. This company talked with the driver and coordinated getting our phone. Then they packed it up and delivered to us. Amazing and very fast service. Highly recommend!!
