FedEx Corp., Memphis, Tenn., will accelerate the expansion of its FedEx Home Delivery network, launched three months ago, to reach about 80 percent of the U.S. population by the fall of 2001.

The company plans to achieve full U.S. coverage by September 2002, more than one year earlier than originally scheduled.
Through a two-phase expansion plan, which will begin in July 2000, FedEx Ground will open approximately 150 new FedEx Home Delivery terminals to increase the network's service coverage.
