How FedEx is Responding Globally to Coronavirus

February 20, 2020

Providing Humanitarian Aid
When disaster strikes, we use the deep shipping expertise of our team members to mobilize the FedEx global network and work with relief organizations to transport urgently-needed supplies quickly and efficiently to those who need it most.

We have delivered humanitarian aid to China on behalf of multiple organizations including Direct Relief since Jan. 31.

The aid has been sent to hospitals and local governments in need. These shipments include masks, face shields, coveralls, shoe covers and gloves.

We are also working with International Medical Corps to ship face masks and medical supplies to the Philippines for Coronavirus protection.

Additional Recent Relief Efforts
We worked with International Medical Corps to support the Taal Volcano relief efforts by shipping 997 wound care kits and 1053 household hygiene kits. These much needed supplies will help positively impact over 6,000 people.

Our Team Members
The safety and well-being of our team members is our top priority, and we are closely monitoring guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO). In areas where outbreaks have been reported, FedEx is supplying surgical masks, hand sanitizer and alcohol wipes to team members and vendors and disinfecting facilities in areas where outbreaks have occurred.  In addition, all FedEx and vendor employees at Mainland China FedEx gateways and ramps are temperature checked when reporting to work.  We are also encouraging our team members to take any signs of illness seriously and seek medical attention as needed.
