Freight Restrictions



Update December 14, 2010

In our ongoing efforts to make our global express network even more secure, FedEx is working closely with security agencies around the world to implement security measures. In compliance with new directives, the following restrictions on cargo shipments are in effect:

Yemen: All shipments outbound from Yemen are suspended. This restriction went into effect at the end of October and will remain until further notice.



UK: Unless originating from a UK Department for Transport Known Consignor, shipments of ink or toner cartridges are not permitted to, from or via the UK if they are being transported within printing equipment and the cartridge weighs more than 500g (17.6 oz). All other restrictions on printer cartridges are lifted.



Guam, Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), Palau, Micronesia, Marshall Islands, American Samoa: Due to regulatory compliance directives, certain commodities cannot be transported to Guam, Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), Palau, Micronesia, Marshall Island or American Samoa.

We want to assure you that security is a core value at FedEx; protecting our global transportation networks is, and will always be accomplished through close cooperation between private sector operators and government security agencies. Working with the Transportation Security Administration as well as other security agencies around the world ensures our processes are in compliance with or exceed any current or new regulations. We take any security threat seriously and act quickly, aggressively and responsibly with law enforcement agencies worldwide.
