To obtain a rate quote, you will need to provide shipment dimensions along with the actual weight of your shipment.

For all FedEx Express shipments to another country/territory, dimensional weight is calculated by the following formula: Length x Width x Height (all in cm or all in inches)/ factor number, which is provided by FedEx.

FedEx reserves the right to assess transportation charges based on dimensional weight for all shipments.
