FedEx Logistics, a unit of FedEx Corp., will become a non-vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), meaning it will send freight by sea but not own any ships, Mark Gunn, of the Akron, Ohio-based logistics firm said, "We aren't going to own any ships." FedEx Logistics will arrange the global logistics of ocean freight but Gunn did not say when this will start. The Memphis-based parent firm already has a strong presence with its fleet of aircraft and now is expanding its ground operations with its trucks.
