  • Using the postal codes. If you were accustomed to entering a dummy routing code for shipments bound to Russia, South Africa, South Korea or Turkey, you should begin using appropriate postal codes and postal-code format. Incomplete postal codes may result in incorrect routing of shipments and cause a delivery delay. The postal code should be formatted as follows (N=number):

    • Russia: NNNNNNN
    • South Africa: NNNN
    • South Korea: NNN-NNN
    • Turkey: NNNNN
  • Shipping software updates. If you use an offline electronic shipping solution, such as FedEx Ship Manager® or FedEx Ship Manager® Server, you’ll be contacted individually when the latest version is released to market. If you have questions about this update, you can contact your FedEx account executive.
