FedEx Corp. and OfficeMax have announced a multiyear agreement to offer domestic FedEx Express and FedEx Ground shipping in 900-plus U.S. OfficeMax retail locations beginning this fall.

“OfficeMax is proud to add FedEx shipping services to the full range of office products and services we offer our customers every day,” says Ryan Vero, executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for OfficeMax. “FedEx brings convenient, reliable shipping services that will help our customers meet all of their business needs.”

FedEx services were rolled out in select locations in Chicago and Memphis, Tenn., in mid-June. Locations will continue to roll out through July, August and September. All OfficeMax stores in the United States are expected to have domestic FedEx shipping capabilities by Sept. 30. OfficeMax will accept dropoff packages from FedEx customers at OfficeMax ImPress counters, OfficeMax’s full service in-store print and document services center.

“This expansion of the FedEx retail network is designed to benefit express and ground shipping customers, including small business shippers and consumers,” says T. Michael Glenn, FedEx executive vice president of market development and corporate dommunications. “We look forward to extending the flexibility and convenience of FedEx Ship Site services at OfficeMax to FedEx customers throughout the country once the rollout is completed later this year.”

FedEx Ship Site services at OfficeMax will complement the existing 52,000-plus locations in the FedEx retail network, which includes more than 1,800 FedEx Office locations, 6,000 FedEx Authorized ShipCenters, 725 FedEx World Service Centers and more than 44,000 FedEx Drop Boxes.
