The world’s second-biggest package-shipper continues to keep pace with its larger rival, United Parcel Service. Both businesses saw their revenues grow by around 9% for their 2018 fiscal years. In FedEx’s case, annual sales swelled to $65.5 billion for the fiscal year ending May 31, 2018—a little more than $6 billion short of its arch-competitor. FedEx’s bottom line benefited from a number of factors, most notably a major corporate tax cut in the U.S. The boon helped boost profits by 52.6%, to $4.6 billion. An obstacle worth keeping an eye on: The company’s 2016 acquisition of Dutch delivery firm TNT Express, intended to expand its international footprint, has proven challenging. FedEx has struggled to assimilate TNT; to make matters worse, the acquired firm was hobbled by the NotPetya cyberattack in 2017, which cost an estimated $400 million in lost business and cleanup.
