Shipping Store in West Babylon Discusses FedEx’s Carbon Neutral Operations Goal
West Babylon, NY — By 2040, FedEx intends to become carbon neutral. Allied Pack N Ship is a FedEx-authorized ship center in West Babylon, NY and is proud to partner with FedEx in hopes that their efforts inspire other businesses to do their part in reducing carbon emissions.
FedEx currently has over 200,000 motorized vehicles on the road and as such, feels it is their duty to reduce their carbon emission footprint. As longtime proponents of finding new energy sources, FedEx actually introduced their first electric car in the early 90s, which ran on a lead-acid battery. In 2003, they also became the first mail delivery company to use hybrid vehicles.
As stated in an article released by FedEx on their website, “technology is advancing and manufacturing is scaling, which is helping us work toward an all-electric parcel pickup and delivery ﬂeet by 2040—one of the steps on our journey to carbon neutral operations. Electric vehicles, e-cargo bikes, autonomous vehicles, and electric pallets can help us improve how we deliver. The transportation sector has a long way to go in integrating electric vehicles into our commercial ﬂeets. But the market is now meeting the moment to enable us to better scale an electrification strategy for the FedEx global pickup and delivery fleet.”
FedEx’s next milestone to reach their carbon-neutral goal is scheduled for 2025 when they plan for half of their pickup and delivery fleet purchases to be for electric vehicles. From there, 100 percent of their purchases are intended to be fully electric within 15 years. By 2040, it is their goal to have every FedEx pickup and delivery vehicle in their fleet to be fully electric.
As FedEx moves toward electrifying their fleet, ensuring that charging infrastructures are in place at their facilities is a top priority. As such, they are collaborating with power suppliers, regulatory agencies and government officials to map a strategy going forward. Not to mention, to build more sustainable grids that will support the infrastructure required for large-scale charging of their electric fleet, FedEx is also working with electricity providers to develop more sustainable grids.
