The company employs over 600,000 people worldwide with operations across the Americas, Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. Each business day, FedEx moves over 18 million shipments to more than 220 countries and territories around the globe.

The Service Standards & Solutions team, as part of Central Planning & Engineering (P&E), drives sustainable business growth by designing scalable and bespoke solutions for our customers. We strive to establish operational excellence and a seamless operational integration of FedEx and TNT within Europe. To achieve this, we define standards, provide support, deploy the latest technology and measure, monitor and help improve our service to our customers.
You will be working in a diverse team consisting of around 70 experts who are strategically positioned across Europe. Even though the team has a European focus, there are various projects with a global or multi-regional scope. Preferably we are looking for work-along interns who want to build on their experience and develop their competencies. However, we are also open to interns with research assignments that fit the Central P&E department.
