The big new for FedEx this year is the company’s plan to acquire Dutch delivery firm TNT Express in a $4.8 billion deal. The all-cash deal, announced in April, would help expand FedEx’s presence in Europe, where it competes with UPS and DHL Express of Germany. A possible FedEx-TNT merger comes a couple of years after European regulators blocked a bid for TNT by UPS over antitrust concerns.
