FEDEX CUSTOM CRITICAL CHANGES NAME OF EXPEDITED AIR SERVICE

   FedEx Custom Critical said it has changed the name of its expedited air service to Air Expedite from CharterAir to make it clear to customers that the company offers more than dedicated charter service.

   Air Expedite is one of five divisions within Custom Critical, the FedEx unit that provides non-stop, time-specific, door-to-door delivery of urgent shipments within the U.S., Canada and Europe.

   The company's Point-to-Point Air-Freight Service, for example, uses Custom Critical vehicles for heavyweight pick up and delivery and FedEx aircraft for airlift.

   CharterAir will remain a dedicated service within Air Expedite.

The FREIGHTWAVES TOP 500 For-Hire Carriers list includes FedEx (No. 1).
