FedEx Connecting the World in Responsible and Resourceful Ways

  1. 1. Connecting the world in responsible and resourceful ways
  2. 2. The 3 Rs of Energy Savings Reduce  Reduce fuel consumption with active asset management – right vehicle/right route  Reductions in fuel consumption = reduction in emissions Replace  Replace older vehicles with more fuel efficient vehicles Revolutionize  Drive the creation of new technologies to benefit the customer, the company and the environment March 2014 2
  3. 3. Taking a Leadership Role March 2014 3
  4. 4. Asset Optimization Goal: Maximize asset life & reduce lifecycle cost  Primary tools  Cost per mile analysis  Mileage management  Vehicle placement  Vehicle re-positioning  Fuel management March 2014 4
  5. 5. Mileage Management Manage miles and route usage to maximize useful life March 2014 5
  6. 6. Gallons Saved  98M gallons saved since end of FY05  “Slowing down” the fleet of W700s  Replacing W700s with Sprinters & Reaches  Placing FY12 - FY14 Sprinters on higher utilization routes  Potential to save additional 7.7M gallons annually  Replacing remaining W700s with Isuzu Reach W630  Reducing category of larger vehicles (W700/Reach/W900) by an additional 3,000 units March 2014 6
  7. 7. Gallons Used – Projected 2020 Vehicle Count Type Projected FY14 End State 2020 Pickup 438 438 Panel Van 5,090 5,090 Bulk Truck 375 375 Old Sprinter 2,781 0 New Sprinter 7,901 13,509 W630 2,111 5,228 W700 7,403 0 W900 1,512 2,827 Other Walk-ins 354 0 27,965 27,467 March 2014 7
  8. 8. 2020 Goal In 2008, FedEx Corporation set the U.S. transportation industry's first fuel efficiency goal with a commitment to improve the overall fuel efficiency of the FedEx Express global vehicle fleet 20% by 2020, as compared with its 2005 performance.  Less than five years later, FedEx Express surpassed this goal with a more than 22 % cumulative improvement in fuel economy for its vehicles In early 2013, FedEx announced a new target of 30 % improvement in fuel efficiency for its global vehicle fleet by 2020 March 2014 8
  9. 9. 9 W700 Diesels and Reach W630 Vehicles Operating > 25K Miles Annually 109 Reaches delivered to California in Feb & Mar 2012 to fill PUD shortages March 2014
  10. 10. Fuel Saving Technologies – Driving Change As early as 2005, Global Vehicles was telling the asset supplier market that we require more fuel efficient vehicles and GSE Global Vehicles leadership has moved (driven) our supplier base to make available fuel efficient assets. In the area of walk-ins, GV procured Sprinters and the commercial delivery vehicle model called the “Reach” Tractor and trailer specifications have continued to change to improve fuel efficiency GSE improvements include the implementation of Convertor Power Units (CPU), some of which include cockpit air conditioning March 2014 10
  11. 11. Testing Boundaries and New Ideas Our work with The Environmental Defense Fund paved the way for commercial hybrid vehicles We’ll continue to test new ideas to see if they can meet the needs of our network and industry: • Electric trikes in Paris • LNG and biomass at FedEx Freight • Hydraulic hybrids at FedEx Ground • Green roofs in Chicago • Fuel cells in Oakland
  12. 12. Electric Vehicle Fleet March 2014 12
  13. 13. Hybrid Fleet March 2014 13 Hybrid vehicle technology has shown promise as a means for improving fuel economy but the technology hasn’t always been economically sound
  14. 14. Natural Gas Fleet Natural gas is becoming a vehicle fuel of choice for many fleets in the US Promotes domestic fuel consumption as well as domestic energy and economic security  Reduces greenhouse gas by as much as 11% and is much cleaner than diesel exhaust, thus reducing the amount of exhaust components to keep the air cleaner Tractors – 2 Kenworths and 2 Freightliners  Panel Vans – 10 CNG powered vans March 2014 14
  15. 15. Current Alternate Drivetrain Vehicle Fleet March 2014 15 360 Hybrids 133 EVs 14 CNG 6 EVs 73 CNG/LPG 22 EVs 9 Hybrids 9 CNG 10 EVs 2 LPG EV = Electric Vehicle CNG = Compressed Natural Gas LPG = Liquefied Natural Gas
  16. 16. Alternate Drivetrain FY14 Deployment  To expand our electric fleet in the US and globally, we will be adding the following vehicles  6 Renault Kangoo Euro-style panel vans – Brazil. These will be the first electric vehicles by a global delivery company in Brazil and will be ready for the World Cup and the 2016 Olympics  31 Smith Newton – Domestic  20 Mercedes Benz Euro-style panel vans – France  By the end of FY14, we will have over 220 total EVs globally 16March 2014 Renault Kangoo
  17. 17. Alternate Drivetrain FY14 & FY15 Testing and Planning Nissan EV test  First major manufacturer with plans to launch an electric panel van globally. Previous tests in Singapore and the United Kingdom. Testing planned for Brazil in January, 2014 with U.S. testing to follow Future FY15 plans include testing more technologies that have the potential to improve fuel economy and durability while improving emissions.  Natural gas as a vehicle fuel is becoming more important. Our mission is to determine the feasibility of an all-CNG station, including onsite fueling.  We will be looking at several up and coming companies that have produced cost- effective parallel hybrid drive systems. We’ve placed these on older vehicles with low fuel economy in the past but we’d like to evaluate what improvements may be realized by placing hybrid systems on our newer, more efficient vehicles 17March 2014
  18. 18. Newest Hydrogen Project 20 Hydrogen fuel cell, extended-range electric vehicles  Battery electric vehicle with an on-board hydrogen fuel cell battery charger  Plug in at night and the fuel cell keeps the battery charged while operating  Quiet, clean, only output is water - the vehicle is completely emission free March 2014 18
  19. 19. Hydrogen Fuel Cells Hydrogen fuel cells offer an alternative to batteries, their output is electricity and water Provides option where electricity is being mandated On-highway use and GSE use Provides greater range than batteries alone Infrastructure is minimal compared to electric charging for each vehicle March 2014 19
  20. 20. Hydrogen Fuel Cells Cargo Tractors  15 Hydrogen fuel cell cargo tractors being deployed at the Memphis Hub (pending Project Review Team approval for Properties site preparation)  Test is for 2 years once deployed  Future mandates at airports across the country for electric GSE can be fulfilled with hydrogen fuel cells instead of batteries March 2014 20
