When do package dimensions determine my rates?

Shipments in FedEx-provided packaging are not currently subject to dimensional weight pricing. Dimensional weight is a calculation of a shipment's weight based on the dimensional weight instead of its actual weight. To obtain a rate quote, you will need to provide shipment dimensions along with the actual weight of your shipment.

How do I calculate dimensional weight?

For all FedEx Express shipments to another country, dimensional weight is calculated by the following formula: Length x Width x Height (all in cm or all in inches)/ factor number, which is provided by FedEx.
FedEx reserves the right to assess transportation charges based on dimensional weight for all shipments.

Can I reroute a FedEx Express package in transit or make an address correction?

Yes. Only one reroute request per package is allowed to change a delivery address from what was originally on the air waybill or shipping label. The shipment reroute must be authorized by the sender.
A reroute includes a change to any one of the following:

  • From one street address to another in the same city/state
  • From Hold at FedEx Location instructions to a request for a delivery
  • From delivery instructions to a request for Hold at FedEx Location
  • From one Hold at FedEx Location to another in the same city/state

To reroute a shipment, call Customer Service and provide the following information:

  • FedEx tracking number
  • The new destination address and contact telephone number for the recipient.

Please note that the FedEx Money-Back Guarantee does not apply to shipments that are rerouted.

Are there any extra charges for rerouting a package?

Yes, additional restrictions and fees may apply. There is no extra charge to hold packages for pickup instead of delivery; however, the person authorized to pick up the package will need to present a photo I.D. The FedEx Money-Back Guarantee does not apply to shipments that are rerouted.

FedEx reserves the right to determine the mode of transportation (including air, ground, or other carriers) to get your shipment to its new destination as quickly as possible. FedEx will attempt to honor the new delivery request, but verification and handling procedures may result in delays.

I wasn't home when FedEx tried to deliver my package. What can I do to ensure delivery? / What happens when no one is available at my home or office to accept a shipment?

In most cases, FedEx will attempt to deliver your package three times before returning it to the shipper.

When the driver is unable to leave your package, he/she will leave a tag on your door, informing you of the delivery attempt. The door tag contains the air waybill number and the next delivery time attempt, typically the next business day.

You may contact FedEx Customer Service at 0800 1 888 800 to arrange a specific delivery time re-attempt or to arrange for the package to be held at a FedEx location for self pickup. The nearest FedEx location can be found by clicking on FedEx Locations at fedex.com.
