MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- In 2008, FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) set the U.S. transportation industry’s first fuel efficiency goal with a commitment to improve the overall fuel efficiency of the FedEx Express global vehicle fleet 20 percent by 2020, as compared with its 2005 performance. Less than five years later, FedEx Express has surpassed this goal with a more than 22 percent cumulative improvement in fuel economy for its vehicles.

Additionally, FedEx is announcing a revised, more aggressive goal that continues to move the world’s largest express transportation company forward in an environmentally-conscious manner.

Nice to see an ethical and responsible corporation leading the way for its industry and demonstrating the fuel efficiency goals set by the President for 2025 can be easily and readily met.

A profitable, private-sector company working on it's bottom line. What do you expect? It's called good business sense; too bad federal, state and local governments can't do the same.

I'm sure there's a profit motive behind the goal-setting and the accomplishments, but isn't it great environmental consciousness and profit goals can come together this way?!

FedEx does what's best for FedEx because they're on top of their game. I doubt they're trying to save the planet or other BS high-minded gobbleygook. But if they use it as marketing plus save money on fuel, then all the better.

These forward-thinking companies set the agenda. Others will follow. The result will be less dependence on fossil fuels--which will be good for everyone.

I am so glad they are able to exceed their goal and setting a more aggressive goal.

Lead the way FedEx and the world will follow.

Fed Ex provides a needed service and glad they can change with the times instead of asking for mileage waivers to stay with old technology delivery systems.

Good to see. However, it probably won't reduce the retail price of their services, which in my opinion are still too high.

Just think of the improvement in fuel economy if they stopped driving like maniacs.

I see more and more of these types of vehicles around here... as long as they are economically feasible to run, why not.
