Operating income, at $416 million, was up 129 percent from $182 million over the fiscal third quarter a year ago, with a quarterly operating margin of 4.8 percent up from 2.2 percent. “Outstanding execution of our business strategy and an improving global economy drove solid financial performance in the quarter,” said FedEx Chairman, President, and CEO Frederick W.
