Case Study: Surface Operations Management FedEx is the world’s largest airline in terms of aircraft and freight tons flown, delivering time-sensitive packages and cargo to more than 375 destinations in over 220 countries each day. Located at Memphis International Airport (MEM) in Tennessee, FedEx’s global hub is the nerve centre of one of the most complex, fast-cycle logistics operations today. The Challenge Every week, more than a thousand flights deliver cargo to FedEx’s automated, state-of-the art, package-sorting system at MEM. FedEx has two main arrival/departure banks, one during the day and one at night. Each weekday, approximately 100 FedEx flights arrive between 7 a.m. and 1 p.m.; departing again between 2:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. after all packages have been sorted. The fast-cycle logistics push is even more compressed at night, when more than 150 flights arrive between 10:30 p.m. and 1 a.m., departing again between 2:30 a.m. and 4:15 a.m. A delayed FedEx arrival into MEM may cause packages from that flight to miss the sorting process and thus miss its scheduled departure. Further, a delayed departure disrupts operations at the destination, resulting in additional couriers, employee overtime and other related costs. The cost of delays to a FedEx flight is significant, as it includes package delay fees that are much higher than fuel and crew costs alone. With no direct insight into Memphis operations, FedEx’s Global Operations Control (GOC) had to monitor frequencies and rely on disjointed data from a collection of legacy systems.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
