FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) today announced its #1 ranking in the first-ever
InformationWeek Elite 100 Decade Award category, recognizing the 10
companies that have ranked the highest on average in the InformationWeek
Elite 100 over the past 10 years. FedEx Services ranked No. 5 overall on
the 2016 InformationWeek Elite 100 list—a compilation of the top
business technology innovators in the U.S.
FedEx Services was recognized for its Clearance Customer Profile (CCP)
initiative, which has created a single, web-based global repository
designed to facilitate FedEx customs clearance. The CCP eliminates 26
country- or region-specific profiles and has created an integrated and
efficient application for managing customs clearance information for
FedEx customers. Additionally, CCP supports internal IT goals of
retiring mainframe and duplicative systems around the enterprise.
“At FedEx, we are constantly striving to meet the evolving needs of our
customers and the global marketplace,” said Robert B. Carter, executive
vice president and chief information officer, FedEx Corp. “We are
honored to be recognized for our work over the past ten years, and we
look forward to continuing our digital transformation initiative to
better position FedEx for long-term success.”
The InformationWeek Elite 100 tracks the IT practices of the nation's
most innovative organizations and examines the business practices of

deployment, IT budgets, business technology infrastructure and
strategies. To make the InformationWeek Elite 100, an organization must
demonstrate a pattern of technological, procedural, and organizational
innovation, as judged by InformationWeek editors.
“As business success becomes even more dependent on the ability to
innovate in information technology, being represented on the
