FedEx Express U.S. Coding Details
The following coding details apply to FedEx Express U.S. shipping:
- FedEx provides several standard package types and allows you to use your own packaging for FedEx Express shipping.
- Both commercial and
residential shipments are allowed with FedEx Express U.S. shipping. Residential
shipments are charged a delivery surcharge.
Note: Shipments to residential addresses will be invoiced as Residential Delivery regardless of the information in the ProcessShipmentRequest or RateRequest. The flag is there to ensure you have the surcharge included in your courtesy rate quote. It is helpful if you store the recipient address with the residential surcharge flag in your shipping address book database. If you are unsure about the residential status of an address, use Address Validation to do a residential status check.
- There are several options available to you for billing the transaction charges. These billing options include Bill Shipper’s FedEx Account, Bill Recipient’s FedEx Account, and Bill Third Party’s FedEx Account. Make sure you enter the appropriate FedEx account number if you want recipient or third-party billing. If the account number is missing or incorrect, you will be billed for the shipping costs.
- You can add reference elements to your Ship request which print on the shipping label, the invoice, or both. See the Reference Elements with Output Location table for more information.
- The maximum limits for FedEx Express U.S. packages are 150 lbs., 119"s in length, and 165" in length plus girth (L+2W+2H).
