    • If the international air waybill does not have the IE service marked in the “Express Package Service” section (Section 4 on AWB), customers must write “IE” in the blank service line in Section 4.
    • If no service is marked on the air waybill, your shipment will be sent using a service selected at the discretion of FedEx.
