FedEx

One of the largest delivery services companies in the U.S., FedEx comes in second in annual revenue only to the United Parcel Service. The company, founded in 1973 as the Federal Express Corporation, was initially known as one of the first major delivery services to offer overnight options as part of its flagship service. FedEx is also one of the top contractors of the U.S. government, assisting the United States Postal Service in the transportation of packages through the FedEx SmartPost service. In 2021, FedEx was on the receiving end of criticism when a report revealed that the company was one of over 50 major American companies to have paid $0 in federal taxes on its profits from 2020.
