What determines your shipping cost?
When you’re shipping with FedEx Express, you are offered a number of options with different prices. These are determined by shipment size, shipment weight, delivery speed and geographic zone.
Package size is a key factor when calculating shipping rates. As a general rule, the bigger the package, the more it costs to ship.
Heavier packages cost more to ship, so it is important to pack strategically.
FedEx Express has a wide range of delivery options. Whether you need something shipped overnight or in a few days, we have the delivery option for you.
