FedEx Express Unveils From China with Love Initiative for the FedEx Panda Express

Pandas.JPG Sichuan province is home to China’s most famous furry representative, the giant panda. Living in Chengdu, I have seen many of our ambassadors come and go. After joining FedEx in 2007, I got to be part of the team when TiaShan and MeiLan came to their motherland from the US. It was an amazing sight to see our panda decaled plane at Chengdu Airport.

Now, we are sending off TianTian and YangGuang to Edinburgh, Scotland via the FedEx Panda Express. I know people in Scotland love pandas, so when FedEx announced “From China With Love,” where children can write messages or draw pictures to commemorate the departure of TianTian and YangGuang to their new home, I contacted my daughter’s school to have her classmates also share their wishes.

FedEx may be best known as the company that delivers when something “absolutely, positively” has to be there. But since the company’s founding nearly 40 years ago, we’ve done a lot more than simply deliver packages. And the two pandas currently preparing for their trip to Scotland are just the latest examples in a long list of interesting, unusual and very valuable shipments aboard FedEx vehicles!

The FedEx Panda Express: China to Scotland

FedEx Express donated our logistical services to transport two giant pandas from China to Scotland on Sunday, December 4, 2011.

Almost two years ago, in February, 2010, a male and female panda were safely and successfully moved from the U.S. where they were born, to China.
