Printer-Friendly Bypass Long Lines by Shipping Your Luggage Ahead

Ease airport hassles and lighten your load. Ship your luggage ahead with FedEx® for reliable, timely delivery.
We’ve all been there — at the airport, struggling with heavy luggage, clumsily inching through the check-in line, the airport clock edging closer to departure time.

Take the stress out of your U.S. traveling experience by letting FedEx handle your baggage. You’ll be free to enjoy your vacation or extended business travel without being weighed down.

Just bring your luggage to your nearest FedEx Office location to get it on its way.
