FedEx First Cross-Border Electric Vehicle Delivery Trial from Malaysia to Singapore

As one of sustainability advocates, I’m honoured to be at the launch of FedEx Company’s First Cross-Border Electric Vehicle Delivery Trial from Malaysia to Singapore. This is the initiative complementing FedEx goal to achieve carbon-neutral operations globally by 2040 and also part of FedEx continuous exploration of ways to promote sustainable logistics.

During the event, we witnessed the kick-off journey made by a ‘Maxus eDeliver 7’ from a FedEx station in Shah Alam to a FedEx facility at Changi Airport in Singapore covering a total distance of 406 kilometres. The estimated reduction of tailpipe CO2 emission for this trial journey is approximately 100 kilograms compared to diesel-powered vans.  

FedEx is using this trial as an initial assessment of the operational effectiveness for future cross-border pick-up and delivery operations. The insights gained will be pivotal in shaping the future of FedEx operations, which will not only benefit the environment, but also help improve the efficiency of its fleet, while providing excellent service to its customers.

“Our efforts to reduce emissions throughout our business means we need to think strategically about all of our ground operations, not just last-mile delivery,” said Kawal Preet, president, Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa region at FedEx. “This cross-border trial is a proof of concept that will help inform and advance our fleet electrification program in the region, in line with our customers’ desire for sustainable time-definite delivery.”

The trial marks an important milestone for FedEx, as the company works towards its goal to transform its entire global pickup and delivery fleet to zero-emission electric vehicles by 2040 through a phased approach. In May 2023, FedEx added two EVs to its fleet in Malaysia for parcel pick-up and delivery operations within the Klang Valley.

"Making this cross-border attempt with a zero-tailpipe emissions vehicle goes beyond a logistical achievement, and represents a bold step in beginning to redefine industry standards,” said Tien Long Woon, managing director of FedEx Express Malaysia. “FedEx is committed to innovating and leveraging technologies that enable improvements to the efficiency of our operations, as well as provide better and more sustainable service to our customers in Malaysia.” 

FedEX recently also launched a cloud-based carbon emissions reporting tool, FedEx® Sustainability Insights, giving customers in Malaysia access to historical emissions information on their shipments within the FedEx network.  

FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies. FedEx customers can use the data to make informed decisions on their future shipping strategy to reduce their impact to the environment.
