FedEx Lights Up Malaysia’s Iconic Kuala Lumpur Tower to Celebrate Milestone Anniversary

FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, celebrated its anniversary by lighting up the Kuala Lumpur Tower, one of the tallest structures in Southeast Asia, in shades of the official FedEx colors purple and orange on April 17.

This year marks the 50th anniversary of FedEx worldwide and the 30th anniversary of FedEx in Malaysia. To celebrate this significant milestone, the company had the Kuala Lumpur Tower lit up to express its commitment to its customers and its gratitude for being welcomed as a member of the community for decades.

FedEx began its operations on April 17, 1973, in Memphis, Tennessee, with 389 team members and 14 aircrafts.

On that first night, the company delivered 186 packages to 25 cities across the United States. Now, the company employs nearly 530,000 employees worldwide and ships 16.5 million packages daily across the globe.

Over time, FedEx expanded its services to include international destinations, launching its first international services in Asia and Europe in 1984. In 1993, the company introduced direct services to customers in Malaysia, further expanding its global reach and capabilities.

FedEx in Malaysia launched a transpacific next day service for Penang in 1997 and opened a facility in Batu Kawan to strengthen the network and meet local customer demand in 2020.

At this important milestone, FedEx is committed to stay ahead of the supply chain curve by focusing on best-in-class innovations that will pave the way for the future.

FedEx team members across Asia Pacific, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) including Malaysia came together with those across the globe to celebrate the company’s 50th anniversary through 50 Days of Caring. Team members supported the communities they serve every day by volunteering their time and donating items to agencies in need.

Whether it was through refurbishing schools and hospitals or cleaning up parks and beaches, giving back is part of the company’s culture.

FedEx also recently announced it exceeded its FedEx Cares 50 by 50 goal of helping 50 million people by its 50th birthday.
