H1N1 Flu Update

May 7, 2009

We want to assure our customers that we are continuing to monitor the H1N1 influenza outbreak and are continuing to follow the guidelines and recommendations of the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Our priority is to maintain a safe work environment for our team members as well as for our customers.

As businesses begin to reopen in Mexico, we urge customers to continue checking with their recipients to ensure they are open and able to accept shipments. FedEx continues to operate normally in Mexico.

Our safety experts have conferred with the CDC on the need for surface disinfection of FedEx packages. We have been advised that there is neither a general need nor a recommendation for any special cleaning concerning surface infection. The current measures we have implemented combined with health and good hygiene practices remain the best prevention.

As an expert in contingency planning, we will be prepared to address potential health care issue of team members and to provide uninterrupted service to the best of our ability as the flu issue evolves.
