New York Operation Launches FedEx Service

New York, N.Y. — New York-based operator Slate NYC launched a strategic alliance with FedEx last week to provide laundry and drycleaning services to the residents of the city’s five boroughs, New Jersey and Connecticut.
Under the arrangement, customers can have their clothing picked up and delivered by FedEx, or can pick up and drop off their orders at any of the more than 500 FedEx/Kinko’s and FedEx shipping centers in the area.
Users of the FedEx service schedule recurring pickups at Slate NYC’s website,, and pay flat monthly fees. The orders are then transported to Slate’s 4,000-square-foot Manhattan facility for what the company calls “eco-luxury” processing.
Cleaned clothes are delivered in custom-designed, recyclable corrugated boxes instead of poly bags, the company adds, and FedEx’ fleet of hybrid delivery vehicles further decreases the service’s environmental footprint.
