The need for a more efficient means of package delivery is required in order to help cut costs and reduce emissions, which the new Boeing 777 Freighter ecoDemonstrator is reportedly set to offer. Set to start flying in 2018, the ecoDemonstrator has been engineered with new flight deck advances along with new propulsion in order to make the plane as efficient as possible.

The Boeing 777 Freighter ecoDemonstrator comes as a new collaboration with FedEx that will see the aircraft tested extensively before being used for FedEx Express purposes. Testing of the aircraft will run trials of the compact thrust reverser that's designed to help slow the aircraft while using less fuel – while manufacturing tests will help to reduce waste during production.
