No, it used to be Federal Express.
caflyboy wrote:It probably has to do with the diversification and expansion into other businesses. When they bought RPS they turned it into FedEx ground. Then all the others like Kinkos into FedEx office. They are subsidiary company's of FedEx Corp. With the airline, it is probably like American Eagle... When they started using that as the brand name, the question was what to do with the actual AIRLINE called American Eagle...hence Envoy.
When Fed Ex started all the subsidiary companies, they needed a new name for the airline as the others were all FedEx. As a separate company Fed Ex could do Fed Ex air, but has been pointed out, that is not necessarily accurate as Fed Ex had a ground service under the express banner PRIOR to purchasing RPS. Its like the poster said, its keeping the strength of the brand and trying to keep everything strong under that name.
