On January 10, 2023 , Fedex Express announced that it is deploying 30 Tata Ace RVs in Delhi as part of its goal to achieve carbon neutral operations globally. The company is planning to transform its entire parcel pickup and delivery fleet to zero emission electric vehicles by 2040. FedEX has a goal of converting 50% of its global pickup and delivery vehicle purchases to electric by 2025, with that increasing to 100% by 2030. Last year, the company conducted EV trials in India to test the vehicle technology and assess the operational effectiveness of vehicles on a standard route fully loaded with packages. Based on these trials, each new EV added to the FedEX fleet is estimated to save up to 1.3 tons of carbon emissions annually. "At FedEX, we have ambitious sustainability goals, and our phased approach to vehicle electrification is a crucual part of our roadmap to reduce environmental impact in a pursuit of a greener world" said Suvendu Choudhary, Managing Director of FedEX Express India Operations.
