A Salute to FedEx

Outreach Aid to the Americas/Americas Relief Team (OAA/ART) wishes to salute FedEx for their continuous commitment in providing disaster relief around the world, and its continued support of C-PReP.

FedEx corporate social responsibility strategy works using FedEx global reach and purpose-driven mission, connecting the world responsibly and resourcefully, providing support on a global scale.

FedEx believes a connected world is a better world that allows the company to add value to customers and communities. With networks that link more than 99% of the world’s gross domestic product, FedEx connects people with goods, services and ideas in ways that strengthen the company’s business, while creating opportunities and positive impacts for society.

For decades, FedEx has used its nearly 700 planes, 200,000 vehicles and the world’s most powerful and versatile transportation and logistics network to deliver critical supplies, services and expertise to support victims of disaster.

At FedEx, disaster relief is in their DNA. Each year, they set aside space for as much as four million pounds of disaster-related charitable shipping. They also leverage their logistics expertise, scale and work on long-term recovery efforts in communities like New Orleans and Haiti that, years later, still have a lot of rebuilding to do.

OAA/ART is honored and thankful for its partnership with FedEx through C-PReP to help countries in Latin America and the Caribbean enhance the preparedness and response capacity of their ports and airports.
