Road Safety

Protecting pedestrians and making roads safer worldwide.

By 2030, road traffic crashes are estimated to cause more fatalities than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis. It doesn’t have to be this way, and we at FedEx believe we can help change these outcomes.

FedEx is very familiar with the importance of road safety. So we asked ourselves a question: what if we took our expertise and combined it with our global reach to makes the roads safer around the world?
