TOKYO, November 30, 2017 – As part of the global FedEx Cares initiative, 89 employees of FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, volunteered in seven locations across Japan beginning in September and ending in November. Employees were involved in a variety of activities, including cleaning up areas in communities near FedEx locations and collecting clothes to assist refugees and people affected by disasters.

FedEx Corp. has a long history of giving back to the communities where it operates. The company is currently committed to giving $200 million in 200 communities by 2020, in addition to offering its team members opportunities to volunteer.

“At FedEx, we are always mindful of giving back to the communities where we live and work,” said Masamichi Ujiie, regional vice president, North Pacific, FedEx Express. “The FedEx Cares campaign is an expression of that mindfulness and the spirit of volunteerism at FedEx.
