FedEx, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company has been officially named as a Business Superbrand in the influential annual survey that identifies the UK’s strongest business-to-business brands.

As well as achieving a place in the top 20 Business Superbrands, FedEx also topped the Courier, Delivery and Postal Services category.
