Tip 1: Customize Your Deliveries
Take More Control of Your Packages
FedEx Delivery Manager® offers you more control over your deliveries with real-time notifications that let you know your package’s location. Plus, with the option to request to hold for pickup at a FedEx location, Walgreens or participating retailer, you have the ability to redirect your holiday shipments for convenient pickup.
Protect Your Packages
Boost your holiday security with an assist from FedEx Delivery Manager, a convenient service that lets you request to get your home deliveries when and where you want them. With over 70% of U.S. residents expecting holiday shipments this year, you can take more control of your packages and get more protection from “porch pirates” (thieves who take packages from someone’s front porch).
Tip 2: Know Your Shipping Options
Speedy, Reliable FedEx Express
Need a gift there on the double? Or want your ski jacket to beat you to the slopes? Whatever you’re shipping during the holidays, FedEx Express will help you get it there in record time, and for a great value too. And with time-definite shipping in 1–3 business days and delivery as early as 8am, 10:30am or 3pm the next day, you’ll know exactly when your shipment will arrive.
Affordable, Fast FedEx Ground
You probably spent plenty on the perfect gift for your father-in-law. Or maybe you’re shipping a small surprise to your favorite niece. But no matter how much your gift costs, it’s always a good call to choose affordable, fast FedEx Ground. With day-definite shipping in 1–5 business days, you’ll know what day your gift will arrive and you’ll know you got a great price on shipping.
