FedEx launches Earth Smart

FedEx Express has launched its sustainability programme, Earth Smart, in the UK and across Europe, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa.

Earth Smart brings together initiatives designed to benefit the environment and is a FedEx roadmap for delivering sustainable solutions throughout the region.

Through Earth Smart, FedEx has introduced:

*Boeing 777s which offer 18 per cent less emissions and 18 per cent fuel reductions than the MD-11.

*Fully electric delivery vehicles operating in London and Paris allowing couriers to fulfil eight-hour shifts recharging.

*An automated shipping tool called FedEx Electronic Trade Documents which reduces the need to print and sign multiple copies of trade documents, saves customers time and money and reduces paper waste.
