Move to seven-day ground delivery by FedEx continues to raise the stakes in parcel market

When FedEx announced last week that it plans to launch residential delivery seven days a week for most of the United States, effective January 2020 in an effort to “further serve the fast-growing e-commerce market,” it was viewed as big news, and that very much remains the case just a few days later. It is hard not to see it any other way, it seems, given that the e-commerce clearly continues to take a lasting hold on how we shop, coupled with our heightened delivery expectations, too. That is far from new, but one cannot help at marveling at the rapid clip at which things continue to develop.
