(Memphis) It was a tough day at FedEx Friday as many longtime employees worked their last day after taking advantage of the shipping-giant’s voluntary buyout plan.

This is the first wave of workers leaving in the Memphis-based company’s plan to reduce costs.

“The FedEx team members who are taking advantage of the Voluntary Buyout Program have made valuable contributions to our success. We wish them the best for the future.”
