The article compares it to FBA, but it's actually more of a competitor to Amazon's Multi-Channel Fulfillment program. Interesting to hear that Fedex is doing it.  Depending on the fees, might be a great option for many smaller vendors and ones that sell on Amazon but are FBM.

Fedex supply chain webpage (for U.S.) http://www.fedex.com/us/supply-chain/services/

Also interesting to read (on Fedex site) that it's in Memphis (which makes sense) AND it's a fully temperature controlled facility (unlike Amazon).  They also have a similar program in Europe.

It looks to me like the fees are variable, and are negotiated based on volume & needs.  There's no fee chart at Fedex site, only a Contact Us button.
