(Reuters) - Global delivery company FedEx Corp (FDX.N) said on Friday that U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods will raise prices for American businesses and consumers and are “counterproductive to U.S. economic interests.”

“FedEx supports lowering trade barriers for our customers,” the company said in a statement.
