KUALA LUMPUR, May 17 – FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), has announced the integration of electric vehicles (EVs) into its fleet in Malaysia as part of its ongoing commitment to reduce environmental impact and promote sustainable logistics. The introduction of the first two EVs marks a significant step forward for FedEx in Malaysia. These vehicles will be utilized for parcel pick-up and delivery operations within the Klang Valley, contributing to a reduced carbon footprint and improved air quality in urban areas.
Moving forward, FedEx plans to expand its EV fleet to further advance emissions reduction goals in Malaysia. Tien-Long Woon, managing director of FedEx Express Malaysia and Thailand, highlighted FedEx’s active promotion of EV usage as part of its sustainability objectives, including the electrification of its fleet. “We recognize the benefits of EVs in reducing CO2 emissions and are taking concrete steps to integrate them into our operations,” said Woon. He further emphasized that FedEx’s actions align with the Malaysian government’s commitment to promoting EVs.
As a means to combat climate change and achieve net zero emissions nationally by 2050. With its three-decade presence in Malaysia, FedEx sees this as an opportunity to showcase its leadership in sustainable business practices while providing high-quality services to customers. Across the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa region, FedEx has already deployed electric vehicles in various countries, boasting the largest EV fleet in China. The company has also conducted EV trials in India, Thailand, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates to support emissions reduction initiatives.
FedEx is firmly committed to reducing its environmental impact and aims to achieve carbon-neutral operations through a range of initiatives. Vehicle electrification plays a vital role in this effort, with FedEx Express setting a target to operate an all-electric global pickup and delivery (PUD) fleet by 2040. To meet this objective, the company plans to have 50% of all new PUD vehicles as electric by 2025 and achieve 100% electric vehicles by 2030.
