The FedEx MEC is going to begin rolling out push notifications for their users via the ALPA Mobile app. For now, Council 14 will be the first group to utilize this technology.

After that, you're all set. The use of push notifications will expand over time as we develop further automation and best practices. In order for this to work, you  must  have the app as well as enabled notifications. For support on this issue, please contact Eric Meewes at or via phone at 901-842-2219. As this is a new product, we appreciate your patience and willingness to take part in its first usage.
