FedEx International Ground® Service Available via the FedEx Network

Before, your only option for shipping to Canada from certain FedEx locations was via FedEx Express® services. Now, FedEx International Ground service is available.

Whether you’re in a business that trades internationally, or you’re a consumer who sends packages occasionally or regularly to Canada, you now have a more economical shipping option when shipping from or dropping off packages at FedEx Office and FedEx Authorized ShipCenter® locations. Starting now, you can ship packages to and from Canada from these locations using FedEx International Ground service, the cost-effective, door-to-door ground service for cross-border shipping.

Service features
FedEx International Ground service includes:

  • Delivery to every business and residential address throughout Canada, excluding PO boxes.
  • Day-definite delivery, typically within 2 to 7 business days by end of business day. Check for transit times in your area.
  • Simplified zone structure, with one zone chart for all U.S. origins and two Canadian shipping zones.
  • Packages up to 150 lbs., 108" in length, and 165" in length plus girth.
