The National Association of Professional Organizers honored FedEx with a 2011 Organizing Excellence Award, presented at its 23rd Annual Conference and Organizing Exposition held in San Diego. NAPO recognized FedEx for its long history of keeping the promise of on-time delivery through strategic and tactical organization.
“Our global transportation network creates order and efficiency, in our case, to the world of commerce through the careful strategic planning and execution by our team members,” says John Fitzpatrick, managing director of the Southern California Region of FedEx Express. “On behalf of all 290,000 of our team members at FedEx, thank you very much for this Organizing Excellence Award.”
On an average day, FedEx delivers 8.5 million shipments, involving the coordination of nearly 700 planes and more than 80,000 motorized vehicles serving over 220 countries and territories. “Organization was key in creating FedEx’s globally respected air and ground network,” says Barry Izsak, NAPO past president. “How fitting is it that NAPO, an association comprised of organizing and productivity professionals, is able to recognize FedEx, a company that has built its success and achieved its mission by being organized and productive.”
