When you’re shipping fashion and luxury goods you need absolute reliability and on-time delivery to keep your customers happy. Plus you have to cope with the demands of seasonal promotion, launch timetables and the need to fulfill unexpected repeat orders, not to mention staying one step ahead of your competitors.

FedEx has spent years working hand in hand with manufacturers, distributors and retailers in these demanding sectors to provide fail-safe shipping solutions. So whether you suddenly need to change pickup schedules, arrange extra deliveries from manufacturers or organise personalised customs services, you can count on FedEx to support you every step of the way.

Here’s how you can benefit from using FedEx services to deliver your goods:

- High speed order fulfilment
If you’re looking for an express distribution, BreakBulk® door-to door service, choose FedEx International Priority DirectDistribution® Single Point of Clearance (SPOC). We clear your goods through customs as a single shipment entry and then deliver all the individual packages to multiple recipients in the destination country/territory.

This service has helped a specialist fabrics supplier in Belgium to deliver its products faster, enter new markets, boost its US business – and save costs! His testimony speaks for itself.

- Express overnight deliveries to the USA
Need to supply key customers in the US, wherever they are, as fast as possible? When you ship with FedEx International First®, you can make delivery to 13,000 postal codes by 8:00 or 8:30 am the following morning for goods weighing up to 68kg per package. What’s more, the total shipment weight is practically unlimited – plus you enjoy the added reassurance of our FedEx Money Back Guarantee.

- Trouble-free returns
Our FedEx Global Returns service gives you full control of the entire process. That means you can reduce errors and ensure a smoother return experience for everyone. You can even create return labels and customs documents at the same time as the outbound shipment, or else produce them just for the return leg. You also enjoy full visibility throughout the returns process, you can choose flexible options to meet your particular needs, and you can call on us for clearing assistance whenever necessary to avoid possible delays.

- Customs clearance expertise
Every commodity is different – and so is every market. Rules, regulations, duties and taxes change all the time, and making sense of them all can be a real headache.

We make it our business to keep on top of each and every changing requirement on your behalf. That’s why you always enjoy fast, reliable and efficient clearance for exports and imports when you use FedEx. We also provide value-added solutions and tailor-made shipping services to deal with any special processing you or your customers may need.
