Billing / Invoice FAQ's

ShowTop Three Questions
How can I request a copy of my invoice / awb / credit note?

I would like to send a package, can you arrange to have it picked-up?

I received an invoice, but it does not show my discount?

  • Please check if weight and service correspond with the information on your awb.
  • Please note that no discount is being applied on the FedEx Economy Service or FedEx 10 kg & 25 kg Box Service.
  • Contact our Customer Service.
  • Or send an email to billch@fedex.com and mention invoice and awb number. If possible, an additional remark of the reason (difference with the prices received from the Sales representative, difference with the prices mentioned at pickup request...) is an advantage.

How can I open an account with FedEx?

You can also open an account online.

How do I fill in my awb?

You can find all details on our website: "Shipping Guide"
You can always contact our Customer Service.

Why do I receive 2 invoices for the same shipment?

On a FedEx awb you have 2 billing options. One option for the freight charges, one option for the duty and tax charges. These charges are always billed on a separate invoice. 

So you can check if it concerns a Freight invoice or a Duty and Tax invoice:

  • Freight invoice: On this invoice FedEx charges you the transportation costs to send a shipment.
  • Duty and tax invoice: This invoice is the charge FedEx has to pay to Swiss customs to have your shipment declared.

You can always contact our Customer Service or send an email to billch@fedex.com to get more info.

What is a dimensional weight and how do you calculate this?

  • The dimensional weight is the "volume" weight of a package. If this volumetric weight is higher than the actual weight, than this will be charged.
    The charges only apply on your own packaging, not the FedEx packaging.
  • How is this calculated:
    Calculation is based on the length , height and width of your package

Dim weight in Kilos= Length X width X height ( in CM )
                                                       5000

Dim weight in Pounds = Length X width X height( in inches )
                                                               139

 

How is the fuel surcharge calculated?

  • The fuel surcharge is not a fix charge, but rated on a monthly basis and can be checked on http://www.fedex.com/ch/fuelsurcharge/

How are the duty / tax calculated?

To get the exact calculation or information on duty and tax charges you should contact our Customer Service.

The duty /tax charge is incorrect. How do I dispute these charges?

If your custom document is incorrect you need to file a claim at our Customs department. Also the invoice with all the supporting documents need to be returned to FedEx to be able to file a dispute at the Customs Authorities.
