Strength of Tenant:
This unique distribution facility is 100% occupied by FedEx Ground, the fastest-growing and most profitable subsidiary of FedEx Corporation. One of the strengths of FedEx Ground is that it is considered an essential business, and as such, this tenant remained open and paid rent throughout the entire COVID-19 pandemic. While past performance does not guarantee future results, this is an important aspect that Kay Properties considers when evaluating Delaware Statutory Trust properties. Specifically:

  • How did the tenant do during COVID?
  • Did they shut down?
  • Were they forced to be shut down?
  • Did they pay their rent?
  • Did they ask for rent reduction or rent relief?
  • How well did they do throughout COVID-19?

Why Kay Properties Likes FedEx as a Delaware Statutory Trust Tenant

Kay Properties has approximately 20 of these types of FedEx facilities across the country. Whether it’s FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight or other FedEx distribution assets, investors received their pro-rata portion of the rent each and every month because of the size of the tenant and because they were deemed essential logistics tenants. FedEx Ground has 65,000 team members working in more than 600 FedEx Ground operating facilities across the country. Revenue for FedEx Ground - another important thing to look at - increased by 34% in 2021.

Another interesting point to note here is that Delaware Statutory Trust 1031 exchange investors are not investing in the stock of FedEx. If the share price of the stock goes up by 20% or goes down by 20%, DST investors are not the owner of the stock. They are the landlord of the DST property and FedEx Ground is the tenant paying monthly rent to the landlord.
