FedEx Makes First Zero Emission Cross Border Delivery From Msia

FedEx Express has successfully executed the first ever cross-border package delivery from Malaysia to Singapore with an electric vehicle (EV). The attempt was recognized by the Malaysian Book of Records for ‘First Zero Emission Cross-Border Delivery’.

On February 27, 2024, the milestone journey, which spanned a distance of 406 kilometers, commenced at a FedEx station in Shah Alam and concluded at a FedEx facility at Changi Airport in Singapore. The journey was completed with just a single charge in Johor. It also demonstrated approximately 100 kilograms reduction of tailpipe CO2 emissions when compared to diesel- powered vans.

“We are proud to be part of this milestone in advancing cross-border logistics with an electric vehicle. This achievement also reflects our drive to pioneer environmental stewardship and demonstrates our commitment to advancing sustainable logistics solutions for our customers to help achieve their sustainability goals,” said Eric Tan, managing director of FedEx Express

The courier company said it is using the insights gained from this trial to assess operational effectiveness for future cross-border pick-up and delivery operations. “This will be pivotal in shaping the future of its operations, which will not only benefit the environment, but also improve the efficiency of its fleet, while providing excellent service to customers.”

The company also recently launched a cloud-based carbon emissions reporting tool, FedEx Sustainability Insights, giving customers access to historical emissions information on their shipments within the FedEx network. FedEx customers can use the data to help make more informed decisions on their future shipping strategy to reduce their impact to the environment.
