FedEx to offer free Wi-Fi at its stores

Posted in Wi-Fi by Conner Flynn on October 7th, 2010

If you spend much time in a FedEx office, we have some good news. FedEx has announced that it’s offering free Wi-Fi access to about 1,000 of its FedEx Office Print & Ship Center locations around the US. It will be powered by AT&T and will be arriving in its other stores by the end of October, bringing the total number of locations that offer free Wi-Fi closer to 1,600 in all.

That includes former Kinkos stores, which FedEx recently took over. The idea is to draw in extra business customers who need to keep working while they’re shipping packages.

FedEx rolls out electric trucks

Posted in Automotive by Conner Flynn on March 30th, 2010

FedEx wants to go greener, so this week it rolled out its first all-electric FedEx delivery trucks in the United States. Starting in June, FedEx will be sending the first four electric vans out on the roads of Los Angeles, saving energy as they go.

We have no idea just how much these vehicles cost, but the truck’s 80kWh battery alone is “well above the cost of a large luxury sedan,” according to FedEx’s VP of Global Vehicles John Formisano. We hope that despite high costs, FedEx continues with this and gets more of these trucks on the road.
