EXPRESSCLEAR® Customs Clearance System


Our fully automated EXPRESSCLEAR system provides rapid, accurate processing for clearance of your international shipments before the plane even leaves the ground. The system uses state-of-the-art technology to electronically transmit shipment information to the Customs Agency, including commercial invoice information, so the processing of a shipment can begin before the package is in the air.

Customs officers inspect packages on-site, so packages approved for release can be sorted and sent out to meet the original delivery deadline. Because of the EXPRESSCLEAR system, over 90% of all shipments are cleared the same day.


Standard customs clearance is included with every FedEx international shipment, but you also have the option to use your own broker with FedEx® International Broker Select.

In addition, FedEx offers value-added ancillary clearance services that can provide you with superior solutions and processing efficiencies by speeding-up clearance time and reducing your delivery time.
