Set in 2000, the case provides a comprehensive analysis of transportation logistics and FedEx's internal integrated logistics applications. FedEx demonstrates the shift from "physical" to "information and value-added services" in an e-commerce environment. The case is an excellent scenario to discuss whether companies should focus on core competencies or seek vertical and forward integration to provide integrated services. It also addresses issues that companies face when they wish to transform themselves from a conventional to an e-business model.
