MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) _ FedEx is buying a company that ships orders for catalogue and Internet retailers.

FedEx officials in Memphis announced Monday morning the company will purchase Parcel Direct, paying $120-million cash.

The company will become a division of FedEx Ground.

FedEx spokesman Jess Bunn says Parcel Direct is specially designed for slower-moving, lightweight packages.

Parcel Direct is based in New Berlin, Wisconsin. It has 450 employees and revenues of about $250-million, as a division of Quad/Graphics.

Packages handled by Parcel Direct are taken to 12 company locations around the country where they are sorted and consolidated -- then taken to the US Postal Service for final delivery.
