MISSISSAUGA, Ontario, June 1, 2007 — CCEOC Inc. today announced that all three Federal Express Canada Ltd. (“FedEx Express Canada”) customer service centres have achieved the prestigious Contact Center Employer of Choice® designation for 2007. This is the fourth year in a row that FedEx Express Canada, a unit of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), has participated in the program and achieved certification.

The Mississauga and Montreal customer service centres achieved the Gold level designation, while the Vancouver customer service centre achieved the Platinum level designation.

The Contact Center Employer of Choice (“CCEOC”) program helped identify areas of improvement for FedEx Express Canada. The company responded by building exceptional work environments that attracted and retained high-performing employees. By targeting the key recommendations outlined in the CCEOC Summary Reporting, the FedEx Express Canada customer service centres have experienced increased employee satisfaction, increased customer satisfaction and reduced turnover.

“The FedEx Express Canada customer service centres continue to amaze me in their pursuit of excellence. Maintaining and improving their certification scores over the past four years clearly demonstrates their dedication to their employees, customers and community” said Jeff Doran, president of CCEOC Inc. “Their people-focused values resonate throughout the organization and have had a profound affect on improving satisfaction, pride, commitment, respect and ultimately performance. Being recognized as a CCEOC reinforces FedEx Express Canada’s customer service division as a preferred employer and FedEx Express Canada as one of the best organizations to work for in the country.”

According to Patsy Bertoia, managing director, FedEx Express Canada Customer Service, “The FedEx employee culture is to strive to make every customer experience outstanding. I am proud of all three call centres and this recognition is a tribute to the FedEx Express Canada call centre representatives that serve our customers on a day-to-day basis.”

The Contact Center Employer of Choice award is the industry standard for recognizing and branding people-centric contact centers. Through a proprietary assessment, a contact center can quickly determine if they meet the qualification standards. Once the designation is achieved, the contact center is profiled on the official CCEOC corporate web-site, receives a prestigious framed certificate, and is promoted through various print and electronic news channels. To maintain their CCEOC standing, certified contact centres are reassessed every 12 months.

Other certified centres include: Scotiabank, The Shopping Channel, Roche Diagnostics ACCU-CHEK, NuComm International, Grand & Toy, Crawford Adjusters, Neteller, Rogers Communications and CIBA Vision to name a few.
