FedEx Corporation (FDX - Free Report) announced a multi-year partnership with cloud-based software company, Salesforce (CRM - Free Report) , to enhance the e-commerce experience for merchants as well as customers. The move is prudent, given the surge in e-commerce demand amid the pandemic.

Merchants will be able to provide customers with specific information about the delivery of their purchases. The deal will provide access to tools that can optimize supply chain by streamlining shipping and managing costs.

The partnership will benefit customers by providing them the option for two-day shipping, hassle-free returns and detailed insights on the exact time and date of delivery.
