Delivery robots. Pilotless planes. Never-ending competition with Amazon. Welcome to the world of FedEx. The Commercial Appeal is looking for someone to cover the Memphis-based logistics giant. In the past year, FedEx got its swagger back, thanks in large part to the boom in online shopping during the COVID-19 pandemic. This reporter will explore all areas of FedEx, from employee safety issues and hiring challenges to the company’s impact on Memphis and the global logistics scene.

This reporter will produce a mixture of daily, enterprise and project work, with an emphasis on enterprise stories that can drive digital subscriptions.

While the focus of this beat is on FedEx and logistics, this reporter also has two secondary beats:

  • Healthcare / hospitals in the Memphis area, including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
  • Memphis’ major public companies, including AutoZone, International Paper and Terminix


Gannett Co., Inc. is a proud equal opportunity employer. We are a drug free, EEO employer committed to a diverse workforce. We will consider all qualified candidates regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, marital status, personal appearance, sexual orientation, gender identity, family responsibilities, disability, education, political affiliation, or veteran status.
