On May 25, 2022, a FedEx Express MD-11 delivered 100,000 pounds of Gerber baby formula, equivalent to 1 million 8-ounce bottles, to Dulles International Airport from Ramstein, Germany. For the second time this week, FedEx Express supported the U.S. Government’s Operation Fly Formula with the movement of today’s shipment through the FedEx Express air and ground network. The shipment was offloaded and moved onto FedEx Express trucks for transport to a Nestle distribution centre in Pennsylvania.

FedEx remains engaged with the U.S. administration and agencies to provide logistics and transportation support as needed for Operation Fly Formula.

“Our network was designed for missions like this – to move time-sensitive shipments safely and quickly,” said Gina Adams, Senior Vice President for Government and Regulatory Affairs, FedEx. Corp. “The FedEx Express integrated air and ground network expedited the movement of baby formula from manufacturers overseas to the United States for distribution to retail locations and hospitals throughout the country. We’re proud to be working with the U.S. government and our healthcare customers to help alleviate this crisis.”
