Dimensional Weight
Dimensional weight is calculated by multiplying the length by width by height of each package in inches and dividing the total by 139 (standard density in cubic inches per pound). If dimensional weight exceeds the actual weight, charges may be assessed based on dimensional weight.

Dimensional Weight =

Length(cm) x Width(cm) x Height(cm) 

Extra Large Packages
Extra large packages are pieces weighing less than 151 lbs. that exceed 165 inches in length and girth combined. These pieces may be refused, or may be considered as freight shipments once accepted by FedEx, and a minimum billable weight of 151 lbs., may be applied regardless of actual weight. Length and girth of a package is calculated as follows: length plus (2 times the height) plus (2 times the width). If the dimension includes a fraction, a fraction of one-half or greater will be rounded up to the next whole number; less than one-half will be rounded down to the next whole number.

Fuel Surcharge
All shipments are subject to an adjustable fuel surcharge. The surcharge percentage will be subject to adjustment monthly using a rounded average of the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel, as published monthly by the U.S. Department of Energy. 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.
