Types of Opportunities

Contracting with FedEx Ground, independent businesses provide two types of services to FedEx Ground and its customers:

  • Pickup and Delivery (P&D) — Using vans or small trucks, picking up packages from shippers and transporting to the local FedEx Ground station – and, from the destination station, delivering to business and residential recipients
  • Linehaul — Transporting FedEx Ground owned trailers over the road from station to hub, hub to hub, and hub to station — and, in some cases, between customer locations and stations or hubs (“spotted trailers” or “spots”)

Each business contracts to provide service for linehaul runs and spots, or pickup and delivery services for a contracted service area. These businesses purchase or lease their own vehicles and are responsible for hiring and training drivers and staff, and planning and executing the day-to-day operations.

As FedEx Ground, a FORTUNE World’s Most Admired Company, continues to enjoy sustained network and market share growth, the businesses that contract with FedEx Ground have superior opportunities to grow as well.
