FedEx: Special operation to fight covid-19

FedEx Express has announced that it stood up a special operation over the weekend to help the U.S. government quickly move covid-19 test specimens from more than fifty remote drive-through testing centres at major retailers across twelve states. 

This critical mission, led by the White House, Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), was a collaborative effort among retailers and healthcare companies to enable quick processing of covid-19 test specimens to help prevent spread of the virus.

“We have a great responsibility in these unprecedented times to do what we do best—mobilize our network quickly to help the communities where we live and work,” said Raj Subramaniam, president and chief operating officer, FedEx Corp. “As the world’s largest cargo airline, we have the ability to flex our operations in some of the most challenging of circumstances. By swiftly taking action to stand up this special operation, we are playing an important role in advancing the speed of delivery for these critical test samples.”
