FedEx plans to create over 200 direct job opportunities at nine logistics sites in Italy, following the success of previous hiring efforts in 2021 and 2022. This will bring the total direct hires since 2021 to over 1,000. The company's direct hiring approach offers stability and greater opportunities for employees while improving services for customers.

FedEx's direct hiring model, implemented in the country, focuses on directly employing staff for handling operations rather than using external suppliers. This insourcing initiative has enabled the company to enhance its workforce diversity, as it has hired employees from 39 different nationalities.
