Account Benefits
FedEx offers qualified businesses the convenience of charging all inbound and outbound shipping, customs duties, taxes and related fees on one account number. With a valid FedEx account, no cash is needed at the time of shipping or receiving packages.

Address Correction
If the recipient’s address is found to be incomplete or incorrect (e.g. incorrect postal codes, omitted apartment numbers or former street addresses for recipients who have relocated), or if a valid telephone number for the recipient is not provided on the air waybill, a special handling fee per address correction will be assessed.

Dimensional Weight =

Length(cm) x Width(cm) x Height(cm) 

Duties & Taxes

Changes to the FedEx Express fuel surcharge will be applied effective the first Monday of each month. The surcharge percentage will be reflected on your FedEx invoice. The percentage for each month will be available at fedex.com approximately two weeks before the surcharge is applicable.

Limits of Liability
The maximum liability for loss, damage or delay or any claim with regard to any shipment is limited to US$100 or US$20.00 per kg (whichever is greater), unless the shipper declares a greater value for carriage and pays an additional fee.
