FedEx gets spot on Most Admired Companies list



FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) is once again ranked among the most admired companies in the world, according to a survey published in FORTUNE magazine, the company said.

The annual “World´s Most Admired companies” report lists FedEx as the No. 9 ranked company overall. The survey measures nine attributes related to financial performance and corporate reputation.

This is the 18th consecutive year that FedEx has ranked among the top 20 in the FORTUNE Most Admired companies List, with 14 of those years ranking among the top 10.

FORTUNE collaborated with partner Korn Ferry on this survey of corporate reputation. They began with a universe of about 1,500 candidates: the 1,000 largest US companies ranked by revenue, along with non-US companies in FORTUNE´s Global 500 database that have revenues of USD 10 billion or more.

To determine the best-regarded companies in 52 industries, Korn Ferry asked executives, directors, and analysts to rate enterprises in their own industry on nine criteria, from investment value and quality of management and products to social responsibility and ability to attract talent. A company´s score must rank in the top half of its industry survey to be listed.

Results were not published in the following categories owing to insufficient response rates: Cable and Satellite Providers, Petroleum Refining, Pipelines, and US Energy.

FedEx provides customers and businesses worldwide with a broad portfolio of transportation, e-commerce and business services. With annual revenues of USD 62 billion, the company offers integrated business applications through operating companies competing collectively and managed collaboratively, under the respected FedEx brand. Consistently ranked among the world´s most admired and trusted employers, FedEx inspires its more than 400,000 team members to remain “absolutely, positively” focused on safety, the highest ethical and professional standards and the needs of their customers and communities.
