FedEx Express: working to combat COVID-19 in Indonesia

FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., delivered a shipment of 15 pallets carrying COVID-19 swab kits and personal protective equipment to Jakarta, Indonesia.

The critical relief aid arrived in Jakarta on September 14 from New York, USA. These lifesaving medical supplies were coordinated through a collaboration with the US-ASEAN Business Council Institute, the American Indonesian Chamber of Commerce and the Global Task Force on Pandemic Response, a public-private partnership organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and supported by the Business Roundtable to provide a unified platform for businesses to mobilize and deliver resources to assist COVID-19 efforts in areas of the highest need around the world.

“We are honored to be part of this larger mission to combat COVID-19 in Indonesia. FedEx feels a responsibility to help during times like this, and we are fully committed to delivering vaccines and other critical aid where it’s needed most. As we monitor the developments all around the world, we will continue seeking ways to help the local communities through our expertise and extensive network,” said Kawal Preet, president of the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa (AMEA) region at FedEx Express.

FedEx has moved more than 325 metric tons of personal protective equipment between January 2020 and August 2021 to help support healthcare workers and communities in Indonesia.

The shipment of these lifesaving supplies is consistent with the company’s FedEx Cares 50 by 50 goal to positively impact 50 million people around the world by the company’s 50th anniversary in 2023. Through the FedEx Cares “Delivering for Good” initiative, FedEx lends its global network and unparalleled logistics expertise to organizations with mission-critical needs and helps communities before, during and after crises.
