FedEx Express Changes

FedEx will implement the following change to the Temporary Surcharge, effective August 10, 2020.

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

We implemented this surcharge due to the various COVID-19 containment restrictions issued in countries around the world. Those restrictions are disrupting 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.​

​Effective August 10, the surcharge amount for some FedEx Express international shipments originating in Asia and destined to Canada will increase from $0.14 per lb. (0.5 kg) to $0.65 per lb. (0.5 kg). The shipment minimums will remain the same.

FedEx is an essential business keeping commerce moving and delivering critical relief during the COVID-19 crisis. We are still delivering under state-of-emergency and shelter-in-place restrictions issued in various parts of the world.

These restrictions are disrupting the global supply chain. Air cargo capacity is limited, and we’ve had to make adjustments so that our international networks can best deliver much-needed goods and services in this constrained environment.
