September 16, 2009

InformationWeek, the business technology market’s foremost multimedia brand, has named FedEx to its InformationWeek 500 list of innovative information technology organizations for the 13th year in a row.  FedEx placed 10th in this year’s rankings and was named the industry leader for the Transportation and Logistics category.

The InformationWeek 500 selection committee recognized the company’s innovative Software Testing practices.  In the special issue, InformationWeek noted, “This approach lets FedEx pursue high-risk, complex business initiatives, while maintaining acceptable levels of risk.” 

“This year’s top InformationWeek 500 companies stand out for keeping the pressure on for new ideas that drive business results,” said InformationWeek editor Chris Murphy. “In our ranking–and our company profiles, industry insights, and "great ideas" exchange–the InformationWeek 500 celebrates those with the vision and guts to keep innovating.”

“FedEx is honored to once again be named to the InformationWeek 500,” said FedEx executive vice president and chief information officer Robert B. Carter.  “FedEx is proud of the innovative work taking place within the IT organization and gives pause and celebrates when a prestigious organization such as InformationWeek recognizes and awards the team.”
