FedEx fails to deliver on earnings. And that’s a bad sign for the global economy

Professor of Logistics and Supply Chain Management Dale Rogers explains why a disappointing earnings report for the multinational courier delivery services company is worrisome.

In this article published Sept. 18, 2019, in Fortune:
