Get a Head Start With Day- and Time-Definite Delivery
Leave your competitors in the dust by using A.M. Delivery and Close of Business shipping options.

If you were in a race and given a 10-foot head start, you’d have a better chance to outpace your competition. The same concept holds true in business. If you could deliver your product to your customers hours ahead of your competition, you'd have a better chance to win that race as well.

FedEx Freight® Priority already provides fast delivery of your LTL (less-than-truckload) shipments. But for those special times when you want your product delivered in the morning or before the end of the workday, you can upgrade your service by selecting our day- and time-definite delivery options. This can help you with inventory replacement and give you more time to process your customers' orders earlier.

These day- and time-definite FedEx Freight Priority delivery options are backed by a money-back guarantee:1

  • A.M. Delivery. For an $80 fee, your shipment is delivered on the scheduled delivery date by 10:30 a.m.
  • Close of Business. For a $65 fee, your FedEx Freight Priority shipment is delivered by 5 p.m. on the scheduled delivery date. If you're a standard tariff customer, the service is available at no extra charge.

No other LTL freight delivery service can promise you day- and time-definite delivery at such an economical price. That’s value you can bring to your customers.

Enjoy your head start. It pays to beat your competition.
