The company is optimistic about Kenya’s economic reopening, therefore willing to position itself at the forefront of reopening of trade. Meanwhile, FedEx is looking to deliver critical medical supplies as Kenya and the world battle the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The safety of our team members and customers remains our top priority. As an essential-service provider, FedEx is committed to delivering critical supplies to healthcare providers and communities in need, as Kenya and countries around the world respond to the COVID-19 pandemic,” Muh added.
