FedEx | Reaching 17 million kids, improving infrastructure, and helping a global alliance: A FedEx Road Safety Story

Road traffic crashes take 1.35 million lives annually, and injure as many as 50 million people worldwide every year.

If you had more than 170,000 vehicles on the world’s roads, caring about road safety would be top-of-mind. Well…FedEx does, and FedEx cares. Internal investments in road safety range from training drivers to maintaining vehicles. Externally we come alongside road safety NGOs and invest resources to help keep other road users safe.

This video shares our story about reaching more than 17 million kids around the world with lifesaving road safety education and training, improving road infrastructure around schools, and increasing the capacity of road safety nonprofit organizations in 90 countries.

From enabling our drivers around the world to visit schools in a FedEx truck to teach kids about blind spots, to facilitating the development of a tool that will lead to infrastructure improvements for schools worldwide, to helping people in a village in Botswana feel safer, you will be encouraged to see FedEx reaching way beyond the borders of our company to help make communities safer.

This video demonstrates how we strategically align our CSR programs with our corporate values, resources and expertise to help communities worldwide.
