FedEx Closes in on Vehicle Fleet Fuel Efficiency Goal Years Ahead of Schedule with Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Vans
FedEx has made significant progress towards its goal to make its vehicle fleet 20 percent more fuel efficient by 2020, announcing that the FedEx Express vehicle fleet is now 16.6 percent more fuel efficient through 2011 than it was in 2005. One big factor in this improvement? FedEx has accelerated its efforts in fuel conservation with Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans.
By the end of 2013, FedEx will have more than 11,000 Sprinters in service, which is more than 35 percent of its U.S. pick-up and delivery fleet. Each Sprinter-type van is about 70 to 100 percent more fuel-efficient than the original truck it replaces.
We’re excited to see FedEx making these efficiency efforts thanks to the Sprinter. Want to find out how the Sprinter can help your business save? Search the award-winning vehicles on our website, and give us a call at 843-852-4000!
