Receiving Packages (FAQs)

Review the FAQs to learn how to conveniently receive your packages

You have several options:

  1. If your package is already on its way, you can conveniently redirect it to a FedEx retail location for pickup.*
  2. You can set your delivery preferences for your future home deliveries with FedEx Delivery Manager (e.g., request to have your packages held at a FedEx retail location for pickup, left on your doorstep, etc.). Click here to learn more or sign up.
  3. If you miss your chance to redirect your package, don’t worry. If you’re not home for a delivery and we can’t leave your package, you will receive a door tag which gives you the reason and the next steps to get it. Click here to learn more about door tags.
  4. You can also reroute the delivery of your package from one street address to another in the same city/province. A fee may apply depending on the new delivery address. A reroute is a request to change the original delivery address and the shipper’s authorization may be required.

 *This option may not be available for all shipments.

The shipper of your package may require a signature on your package, which means that it won’t be left without an in-person signature. Generally, the shipper will require a signature because of the package value and to protect your merchandise. In some instances, a signature may be required by someone at the delivery address who is 19 years or older and government-issued photo identification will be required.

If you won’t be available at the time of delivery, your shipment may be eligible for another delivery attempt before it’s held at a FedEx location for five business days, and then returned to the shipper.

Please contact the shipper of your package to locate your tracking number. Once you have your tracking number, you can track your package and manage your delivery options.

If your package is already on its way, please contact a FedEx Customer Service representative to see whether the delivery instructions for your package can be modified.

Returning Packages (FAQs)

Review the FAQs to learn how to conveniently return your packages

 If you would like to return a package, the sender may have included a return shipping label in the package with instructions for return.

Please label your package with a return label and either drop it off at a FedEx location, or schedule a pickup.

Otherwise, you can create a shipping label online to return the package to the sender.

You should contact the party who initially sent the return label and customs documentation to you. If you received an online return label, you can reprint it along with the customs documentation for up to five days after you initially access them.

First check to make sure that the shipper didn’t send you a link to the return label. You can also try to reach out to the shipper to get a return label.

Otherwise, you may create a shipping label online to return the package to the sender. Charges may apply.

If the original shipper provided you with an online return label and customs documentation, then making changes is simple:

  • Click the link to the online return label and customs documentation in the email you received from FedEx. 
  • Update the necessary information in the corresponding fields. 
  • View, save, or print the updated documents.

Pick up and Drop off

  • If you don’t have a regular-scheduled pickup then you can schedule a FedEx Express or FedEx Ground pickup for return shipments online at using a FedEx account number. 
  • If you don’t have an account, you can call FedEx Customer Service at 1.800.GoFedEx 1.800.463.3339
  • You can drop off your FedEx Express and FedEx Ground return shipments at a FedEx Ship Centre, FedEx Authorized ShipCentre, FedEx OnSite location or FedEx® Drop Box.

You do not need to have a FedEx account number to send a return shipment. You can call FedEx Customer Service to schedule a FedEx pickup with only a tracking number, or include the return shipment as part of your regular-scheduled pickup (if you have one). If you do not have a regular-scheduled pickup with FedEx, your return shipment can be dropped off at any FedEx® shipping location, or FedEx® Drop Box.

You should contact the original shipper and request that another return label be sent to you for the second shipment.

You should contact the party who initially sent the label and customs documentation to you and request a new print return label, or have them email you an editable return label and the customs documentation.
