The company says “In early February, a number of officers and managing directors, primarily at FedEx Services and FedEx Express, accepted voluntary buyouts, and on February 15, thousands more team members were notified of their eligibility for the buyout program. This program is one of the first steps in a process that will help FedEx Express achieve necessary cost structure reductions and improved efficiency. In addition to continued profit improvements in the base businesses at FedEx Ground and FedEx Freight, our profit improvement programs are targeting annual profitability improvement at FedEx Express of $1.6 billion by the end of fiscal 2016, from the fiscal year 2013 base business. Collectively, these initiatives are expected to increase margins, improve cash flows and increase our competitiveness."
