FedEx signs new $10.5 billion contract with USPS

(Reuters) - FedEx Corp said its FedEx Express subsidiary has entered into a seven-year express air transportation contract with the United States Postal Service for about $10.5 billion.

    FedEx’s current contract ends in September 2013, and the new contract will begin in October 2013.

    The company on Tuesday also launched a new service to let customers select from a range of options to schedule dates, locations and times of delivery. Rival UPS (UPS.N) began offering its “UPS My Choice” service more than a year ago.
