The .fedex Dot Brand
Federal Express Corporation provides a broad range of transportation, e-commerce and business services. It processes more than 8.5 million shipments for express, ground, freight and expedited delivery services every day in more than 220 countries & territories. Its flagship domain fedex.com receives around 32 million monthly visitors.
Fedex's brand TLD will enable it to create new opportunities to conduct business and further its strategic vision which includes a focus on "safety, the highest ethical and professional standards and the needs of their customers and communities".
The .fedex extension will improve and simplify business operations and streamline users' navigation to content. Customers have rising technology expectations. The new brand platform will enable the company " to further innovate global service delivery, business operations and customer engagement..."
It will offer a more personalized brand experience for stakeholders and "create a connected and integrated digital presence". It will also unify the company's products and services.
It will help facilitate marketing campaigns and general marketing & advertising.
It will help to "ensure it can continue to grow its reputation in the transportation, e-commerce, and business service industries and in the global marketplace."
And it will facilitate secure communication with customers and "meet future customer expectations and competitive market demands by continuing to develop and deploy leading-edge online services".
Fedex believes communication will be "critical to building trust and confidence in the legitimacy of the TLD." Media campaigns will be implemented to ensure customers and the public are aware of the brand domains. In particular this outreach will communicate the company's commitment to online safety and data privacy, provide info about the planned uses of the TLD, and clearly define the expected benefits to all stakeholders.
The proposed .fedex string will increase consumer confidence and trust in online interactions. The TLD will have an inherent enhanced level of security. Consumers in the past have had to tread warily on the internet because many apparently branded websites were not actually authorized sites. The .fedex TLD, because of its single registrant status, will enable visitors to immediately distinguish its authority.
