In 2005, FedEx acquired FedEx SmartPost, a leading national small-parcel consolidator. FedEx SmartPost specializes in the delivery of low-weight, less time-sensitive business-to-consumer packages, using the U.S. Postal Service for final delivery to residences. FedEx SmartPost's customers include e-tailers and catalog companies. Through its network of 25 distribution hubs FedEx SmartPost provides delivery Monday through Saturday to all residential addresses in the U.S., including P.O. Boxes and APO/FPO military destinations.
Founded in 1998 as Parcel Direct, was rebranded FedEx SmartPost in 2004.
