FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, gives cycling a major lift.
It recently donated bike repair stations to support the government’s drive to promote cycling in Clark, Pampanga.
Together with the Clark Development Corporation, Bases Conversion and Development Authority, and Clark International Airport Corporation, FedEx installed five bicycle repair stations in the Lakeshore Mexico, LausGroup of Companies, Chef Baboy and CVG Bakery, LCG complex in San Fernando, and Jollibee Guagua JASA.
The stations are equipped with tools to perform basic repairs, such as changing a flat tire and adjusting brakes or derailleurs. Anyone riding a bicycle can now pull over, undertake a quick repair, and then continue on their journey.
“At FedEx, one of our core culture values is committing to do good. This includes improving the welfare of our local communities and promoting sustainability. The repair stations will enhance the safety of cyclists and offer everyone an option for exercise,” said Maribeth Espinosa, Managing Director, FedEx Express Philippines. “It also encourages sustainable commuting when people cycle to their destinations instead of driving.’
FedEx has been a long-time advocate of fostering environmental sustainability, striving to connect the world in responsible and resourceful ways. In the Philippines, the company has collaborated with local non-profits like The Plastic Flamingo and Mori Notes to ethically manage waste and support a circular economy in the country.
