Printer-Friendly Dependable Saturday Pickup and Delivery Options

Concerned about finding and maintaining Saturday pickups and deliveries? Here are three ways to get dependable, timely service on the weekend.
Business rarely comes to a halt on Saturday — whether we like it or not! If you need to schedule an important pickup or delivery for Saturday, and are concerned about the availability or dependability of service in your area, it’s time to choose FedEx.

Here are three ways FedEx can help solve your Saturday shipping challenges:
When you need delivery by a certain time. FedEx Priority Overnight® delivers by noon, 1:30 p.m. or 4:30 p.m. on Saturdays, depending on your destination. Saturday delivery is also available by 4:30 p.m. to most areas with FedEx 2Day® service.

When you need to ship a package. You have several convenient options:
  • Find your nearest staffed FedEx location. Many FedEx locations are open on Saturday to assist you with shipping. Just use the drop-off locator to see FedEx locations open on Saturday.

  • Use a FedEx Express® Drop Box. If your FedEx Express® shipment is already packed and ready to ship, simply drop it in a FedEx Express Drop Box that offers Saturday pickup. Again, use the drop-off locator and filter your search by Saturday service.

  • Schedule a pickup. In addition, FedEx offers Saturday pickup for an additional charge.
When you need a package held for pickup. You can ask your sender to schedule your FedEx Express shipment to be delivered to — and held at — your nearest FedEx Office Print & Ship CenterSM, FedEx World Service Center® or FedEx OfficeSM Ship Center location. You can pick up your package at your convenience — even on Saturday.

When you need an urgent, same-day Saturday delivery. FedEx SameDay® service offers both Saturday pickup and delivery.

When you need to send an international shipment. Shipments to international destinations may be picked up in the U.S. on Saturday in some service areas for a special handling fee (see Shipping Fees). There is no additional charge to drop off your shipments on Saturday at a FedEx location, but keep in mind that not all FedEx Express Drop Boxes offer Saturday pickup. Saturday pickup is not available with FedEx International Economy® or FedEx Express® Freight international services, except in countries where Saturday is a regular business day.
