FedEx Corp. (FDX) said its FedEx Freight is expanding FedEx Freight Direct to more than 80% of the contiguous U.S. population.

The expansion follows a pilot in select markets earlier this year. The new service meets growing demand driven by e-commerce to deliver heavy, bulky items into homes and businesses, FedEx said.

FedEx Freight Direct offers delivery of bulky items such as furniture, TVs and exercise equipment by FedEx Freight team members into residences and businesses, the company said.
