Comment s'y prend-t-on pour livrer deux pandas géants à l'autre bout de la planète? En les confiant à FedEx Express! Celle-ci est le transporteur attitré des charmants pandas chinois, Er Shun et Da Mao, promis au zoo de Toronto. Une occasion de plus pour elle de contribuer au bien-être des localités où travaillent et habitent ses employés. Nous sommes fiers de mettre à contribution notre réseau planétaire et notre expertise logistique pour aller déposer le jeune couple dans ses nouveaux appartements.

Many folks don't know that FedEx ships zoo animals and livestock as part of our normal business. The staff that run our FedEx Animal Desk work the logistics on a daily basis. It seems like Lydia Petropoulus and Carolyn Frisch know more about how to do this right than anyone in the business. On the charitable shipping side, I work with them on rescue type situations when we feel it is appropriate. We have had a few moves this year with some being more unusual than others.

Judy McMillan, from FedEx in Denver, wrote to our department to see if we could help in moving donated Purina pet foods for Freedom Service Dogs. It is within the city of Denver and the shelter did not have the capability of picking up the food, so FedEx came to the rescue. Here is Judy's thank you:

Sichuan province is home to China’s most famous furry representative, the giant panda. Living in Chengdu, I have seen many of our ambassadors come and go. After joining FedEx in 2007, I got to be part of the team when TiaShan and MeiLan came to their motherland from the US. It was an amazing sight to see our panda decaled plane at Chengdu Airport.

FedEx may be best known as the company that delivers when something “absolutely, positively” has to be there. But since the company’s founding nearly 40 years ago, we’ve done a lot more than simply deliver packages. And the two pandas currently preparing for their trip to Scotland are just the latest examples in a long list of interesting, unusual and very valuable shipments aboard FedEx vehicles!

Man, what a lucky young boy. I just met Nick and can´t wait to tell you his unusual story: He is the newest member of the FedEx team, the coolest family in the world! Here at FedEx, he has almost 700 “flying relatives”, starting from small Cessnas to the great big Boeing 777F. And you can´t imagine how proud he is to be a member of such a gigantic family. I bet you're wondering how he managed this… Well, I´ll tell you. Nick is 8 years old and he´s a stork.
