Memphis-based FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) announced it will add the first all-electric vehicles to is local fleet in Brazil at the beginning of next year.

The Brazilian market is the seventh to receive this type of vehicle from FedEx worldwide.

FedEx has been focusing more attention on the rapidly expanding Brazilian market. Last year, the shipping giant bought Rapidão Cometa as a means to expand its market presence.

“We are celebrating the introduction of the electric vehicle in Brazil, which will provide us with an opportunity to assess the feasibility of this vehicle in this market, and is part of our efforts to find cleaner, more efficient transportation solutions. It is also an initiative that can encourage other companies to introduce this type of vehicle into its fleets,” says Mike Murkowski, senior vice president of operations for South America for FedEx Express.
