FedEx Special Delivery
In terms of core competencies, none is more associated with FedEx than transportation and our ability to provide access to the world’s markets. In that light, our capacity to provide lift for disaster relief materials to locations across the world in times of need is a prime area where FedEx expertise is best leveraged. Such a delivery was for Direct Relief International with a flight on Feb. 5th, with $16.6 million in value of relief aid. The shipment contained specifically requested medications and supplies to Port-Au-Prince. Direct Relief’s Director of Emergency Response is shown in the photograph with the arrival of the shipment, providing critically needed, life-saving medical support to thousands of Haitian people who have been injured and affected by the earthquake.
