Disaster Readiness, Relief and Recovery
Disaster relief is in our DNA. 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.
FedEx works with a number of international disaster response organizations that bring relief to victims of emergencies or natural disasters. Specifically, we direct our funds toward the quick and efficient transport of aid and disaster preparedness education initiatives.
Each year, we set aside space for as much as four million pounds of disaster-related charitable shipping. FedEx has long-standing relationships with a number of relief organizations around the world, including
Through these relationships, FedEx is able to ship large amounts of supplies to those impacted most. Because of our ongoing commitment to these organizations, we are unable to support individual shipping requests for disaster support.
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.
