“No Regular Tractor Trailers”

July 9, 2010

The FedEx Custom Critical truck transporting turtle eggs from the Gulf of Mexico is equipped with features including satellite tracking, self-inflating tires, temperature control, and backup power — all meant to move the turtles safely and smoothly to their new home. Driver Ronald Shellito walks through the technology and shares his pride in being able to help.


    Christine Shellito says:

    I’m so proud of my parents, Ron and Margaret-Mary Shellito, for their historical role in helping to preserve the sea turtles!

    Kim Spight says:

    I had an opportunity to view this story on the CBS Evening News last Friday. When I saw the reporter in the Custom Critical truck, it made me proud to say that I work for a company that cares so much to ensure that a species of animals will not be negatively impacted by the Gulf oil spill that has been devastating to so many.

    Lysa Byham says:

    I am extremely proud to be a team member of FedEx Custom Critical and extraordinarily proud of Ron and Margaret-Mary for their support and excellent efforts in this project!

    Extremely proud to be part of a team that helps endangered animals around the world; especially since I’m an animal lover, activist and vegetarian. Keep up the great work!

    Edna Joyce Byars says:
