FedEx has built a global network serving more than 220 countries and territories. 300,000 team members strong, we move over 8 million packages every single day. Our business is designed to make people’s lives better by placing the global marketplace within reach. We provide critical Access that helps people succeed, businesses grow, and communities thrive.
We are proud of the ways we connect the world, and believe our responsibility to provide Access extends beyond our customers. For decades, FedEx has used our nearly 700 planes, 75,000 trucks and the world’s most powerful and versatile transportation and logistics network to deliver critical supplies, services and expertise to support victims of disaster.
At FedEx, disaster relief is in our DNA. Each year, we set aside space for as much as four million pounds of disaster-related charitable shipping. Our operations teams, pilots and drivers consider it an honor to be a part of relief teams that save lives around the world. But we know that delivering supplies is only one piece of how we can help communities affected by disaster. That’s why we also leverage our logistics expertise, scale and influence to invest in preparedness initiatives for families and small businesses. In addition, we work on long-term recovery efforts in communities like New Orleans and Haiti that, years later, still have a lot of rebuilding to do. We are honored to work with some of the world’s top NGOs and are excited to share the impacts of our
commitments in our first report dedicated to our Disaster Readiness, Relief and Recovery programs.
