FedEx Corp. will continue to provide members of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce with direct access to shipping solutions offered by the FedEx family of companies. FedEx Corporate Services Inc. and the chamber agreed to a four-year contract extension to make FedEx the exclusively endorsed provider of shipping services for chamber members.

U.S. Chamber of Commerce members that open a FedEx account for shipping are eligible for discounts that apply to FedEx Express, including express freight and international services, and FedEx Ground.

"This strategic agreement aligns FedEx with one of the world's leading resources for small businesses," said Brian Philips, FedEx vp of U.S. marketing. "FedEx has long recognized the potential of the small businesses of today to evolve into the big businesses of tomorrow. We are committed to enabling their success."

Currently, a majority of FedEx customers are small businesses, defined as those with fewer than 100 employees or less than $50 million in annual revenue. This is very similar to the membership of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
