From powerful global economies to newly-inspired entrepreneurs, FedEx multiplies opportunities and helps create a world of possibilities. FedEx is dedicated to helping small business enterprises (SMEs) expand globally, because we know that they play a vital role in the Asian economy – they have the power to lift up economies, and we believe that SMEs will keep Asia moving forward. FedEx does this by helping to forge connections. As connected communities flourish, businesses prosper and people thrive, the world becomes a better place — now and in the future.
At FedEx, we take the same size, scale and network used in our day-to-day operations to multiply positive outcomes for people around the world. There aren’t many businesses out there with the expertise to connect 99 percent of global GDP, enable growth wherever we operate and be a thoughtful steward of the environment – all at the same time. Together, we proudly own this responsibility every day, everywhere.
Specifically in Asia Pacific:
- We multiply growth: From June 2017 to May 2018, FedEx enhanced its operational network in the region and introduced new flights to connect businesses to more opportunities around the world. For example, new routes launched in 2018 connecting Hanoi, Vietnam to the FedEx Asia Pacific Hub in Guangzhou, China as well as Sydney, Australia to Singapore are helping the development of businesses in these markets. New routes help businesses expand internationally by giving them better, faster access to global trade.
- We multiply good: FedEx volunteers in APAC contributed over 3,000 hours of their time in the FedEx Cares program. As a responsible road user, one of the organizations FedEx volunteers regularly support is Safe Kids which and promotes pedestrian road safety for children across China, Korea, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam and creates Safe School Zones so students can walk to and from school in safety.
- We multiply efficiency: FedEx deployed 48 pure electric vehicles in 13 cities across China in 2018 to help further reduce fuel use and emissions. From June 2017 to May 2018, our efforts to apply our Reduce, Replace, Revolutionize approach collectively resulted in a 39.6 percent improvement in vehicle efficiency from its 2005 baseline.
- We multiply potential: FedEx has received consistent recognition as an employer of choice in both Asia Pacific and globally. FedEx was named the Best Employer in Asia Pacific by Aon Hewitt for six times. Earlier this year, FedEx was ranked 10th in Fortune’s “World’s Most Admired Companies” list. This marks the 19th consecutive year that FedEx has ranked among the top 20 on the list, with 15 of those years ranking among the top 10.
The 2019 Global Citizenship Report (GCR) celebrates our accomplishments like these and more, providing updates on our strategies, goals, programs and progress across the enterprise for FY18. You will find examples of how we connect the world responsibly and resourcefully.
