Duty and Tax Advancement Fee

Effective May 1, 2020, the FedEx Duty and Tax Advancement Fee for Australia will be 2.50% with a minimum fee of AUD20 per shipment.
 

Out of Delivery/Pick-up Area Surcharge

FedEx Express international shipments delivered to or picked up from remote and less-accessible locations are charged an out-of-delivery-area or out-of-pickup-area surcharge. A list of postal codes and cities where these surcharges apply is available here.

Additional Handling Surcharge

Effective January 20, 2020, an Additional Handling Surcharge applies to any package that meets any of the following criteria:

Dimensions

A surcharge applies to a shipment containing any package that:

1) measures greater than 121 centimeters along its longest side;

2) measures greater than 76 centimeters along its second-longest side;

Package shape and dimensions may change during transit, which can affect the package’s surcharge eligibility. If the dimensions change during transit, FedEx may make appropriate adjustments to the shipment charges at any time.

Freight

A surcharge applies to a shipment containing any freight handling unit that measures greater than 157 centimeters along its longest side.

We reserve the right to assess additional handling charges for freight and any freight handling unit that requires special handling during transit.

 

Oversize Charge

Effective January 20, 2020, an oversize charge applies to a shipment containing packages that exceed 243 centimeters in length or 330 centimeters in length and girth (L+2W+2H).

Package shape and dimensions may change during transit, which can affect the package’s surcharge eligibility. If the dimensions change during transit, FedEx may make appropriate adjustments to the shipment charges at any time.

Third Party Billing Surcharge

Effective January 22, 2018, a Third Party Billing Surcharge will apply to shipments that are billed to a third party. The surcharge will be charged to the third-party payer. The Third Party Billing Surcharge applies when an account unrelated to the shipper, as solely determined by FedEx, is billed as a third party for the shipment. Please see the online Standard Conditions of Carriage for the definition of a Bill Third Party shipment.

Temporary Surcharge Adjustment on International Shipments to and from Australia

We announced a temporary surcharge on all FedEx Express international parcel and freight shipments beginning April 6.

We implemented this surcharge due to the various COVID-19 containment restrictions issued in countries around the world. Those restrictions continue to disrupt the global supply chain. As a result, air cargo capacity is limited, and we are incurring incremental costs as we adjust our international networks to best deliver much-needed goods and services in this constrained environment.

Beginning August 10, the surcharge amount for some FedEx Express international parcel and freight shipments outbound from and inbound to Australia will increase. These increases will allow us to continue providing the best possible service during this time. Updated amounts can be found below.

Updated Manual Air Waybill Surcharge (Effective July 6, 2020)

As part of the integration of FedEx Express and TNT, we are taking the opportunity to align our fees and surcharges for manual air waybills and non-electronic consignments.

Starting from 6 July 2020, we will increase the current surcharge for the FedEx manual air waybill to AUD20 per manual air waybill.

Customers who opt for manual air waybills will be charged AUD20 per piece with a minimum order quantity of 1 piece. The launch of the manual air waybill surcharge will also be a part of our digital initiative going forward.

The surcharge will be billed on a separate invoice to you.

We encourage you to ship with our digital tools so that you can enjoy the ease, speed and convenience of processing shipments digitally.
