The origins of the company go back to 1879, when the druggist and businessman Carl Roth founded a material, colonial, dye and 
drug store in Karlsruhe . [3] In 1891, the Carl Roth drugstore received the title and privilege of purveyor to the court of the Grand Duchy of Baden . [3]

In 1928 the drugstore business was expanded to include a department for laboratory chemicals, and in 1945 a manufacturing and bottling department was added. In 1965, the chemicals department moved to a newly built facility on Schoemperlenstraße. In December 1969, Carl Roth sold the drugstore business, ending a 90-year tradition.

The Carl Roth wholesale business was continued in Schoemperlenstraße. In 1993, a high- bay warehouse for the range of laboratory supplies was built there, and in 1996 a shipping warehouse was set up. Even after the addition of an office building in 2001, the company's space requirements soon exceeded the existing premises. In 2003, the company acquired a piece of land in the industrial area of ​​Karlsruhe-Rheinhafen and built a second facility. Since 2005, the production, storage and shipping of laboratory chemicals have been located in this facility on the Rhine port site . In June 2013, the chemicals store in the Rhine port was enlarged by around 50% to 8,000 square meters. [4]

In 2020, a logistics center was built in the Knielingen district. It offers around 7,000 square meters of additional storage space and also includes an automated small parts warehouse. [3]

FedEx Corporation, formerly Federal Express Corporation and later FDX Corporation, is an American multinational conglomerate holding company focused on transportation, e-commerce and services based in Memphis, Tennessee.[3][4] The name "FedEx" is a syllabic abbreviation of the name of the company's original air division, Federal Express, which was used from 1973 until 2000. FedEx today is best known for its air delivery service, FedEx Express, which was one of the first major shipping companies to offer overnight delivery as a flagship service. Since then, FedEx also started FedEx Ground, FedEx Office (originally known as Kinko's), FedEx Supply Chain, FedEx Freight, and various other services across multiple subsidiaries, often meant to respond to its main competitor, UPS. FedEx is also one of the top contractors of the US government and assists in the transport of some United States Postal Service packages through their Air Cargo Network contract.[5]FedEx's prominence in both the United States and the world have made it a common topic in popular culture, with examples including the film Cast Away as well as some of its marketing slogans (most famously "when it absolutely positively has to be there overnight"). In addition, FedEx has purchased the naming rights to FedExField of the NFL's Washington Commanders and FedExForum of the NBA's Memphis Grizzlies. FedEx's air shipping services have made its main hub (aka the "Superhub") at Memphis International Airport the busiest cargo airport in the world by 2020, and Hong Kong[6] second-busiest cargo airport in the world behind Memphis.
