FedEx recently announced its FedEx Extra Hours service, which delivers goods ordered online as late as 2 a.m. for next-day local delivery and two-day shipping to any address in the continental US.




In the New York City and New Jersey metro area, Rent the Runway has adopted the service.




Jennifer Hyman, Rent the Runway's co-founder and CEO, has said the company is as much as logistics company as a retailer.




Rent the Runway's clothing rental and subscription service carries hundreds of thousands of designers pieces that its nine million subscribers can peruse and get shipped to their home.
The process to get those pieces — particularly for subscribers with an "unlimited" membership — to a customer's doorstep and back to the warehouse to later arrive on yet another doorstep is logistically complicated. That's why Jennifer Hyman, Rent the Runway's co-founder and CEO, has said the company is as much as logistics company as a retailer.
