Fuel Efficiency: Accelerating Results

Five years ahead of plan, FedEx Express surpassed its goal to boost vehicle fuel efficiency 30 percent by 2020 from a 2005 baseline. When we set the goal, we knew that most of the technology we needed didn’t exist at the time. But we got the job done thanks to a well-defined strategy: Reduce, Replace, Revolutionize.

REDUCE overall mileage by optimizing routes and assigning the right truck to the right route so that our 50,000-strong vehicle fleet travels the minimum miles needed to serve our customers.

REPLACE vehicles with more fuel-efficient models and maximize fuel economy by reprogramming vehicles to run at optimal levels for their weight and load.

REVOLUTIONIZE the fleet by adapting new technologies such as electric vehicles, fuel cells, natural gas and hybrids. In major metropolitan areas, we’re moving toward electric vehicles. We’re also focusing on hydrogen fuel cells, which can help expand the zero-emission range for electric vehicles.

Since starting the Reduce, Replace, Revolutionize program, we’ve saved more than 137 million gallons of fuel and avoided nearly 1.5 million metric tons of CO2e emissions. Go to csr.fedex.com for more about our sustainability goals and progress.
