2019 Surcharge and Other Information (For Payers in China)
For the complete terms and conditions on FedEx services, please refer to the reverse side of the FedEx International Air Waybill, and the online Standard Conditions of Carriage or International Service Terms and Conditions of the 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.
A surcharge applies to any piece, skid, or pallet of a freight shipment that is non-stackable, which means the piece, skid, or pallet cannot be stacked vertically in a safe and secure manner. A pallet or skid is defined as non-stackable if the customer has designated it as such with a sticker, if it has cones or hats on the top, or if it has an obtuse shape.
Applicable Services: International Express Freight Services (IPF, IEF).
The Inbound Shipment Storage Fee
FedEx charges a storage fee for China inbound shipments after 3 working days from arrival. Each additional working day is calculated at a price of CNY0.5 per kilogram with the actual weight as the calculation basis, or CNY50 per shipment, whichever is greater.
The Customs Clearance Advancement Fee
FedEx charges a service fee for advance payment of the customs clearance fee (including but not limited to customs duties and taxes) relating to China inbound shipments.
If payment is made on delivery in China, the service fee rate is 2% of the total advance payment of the customs duties, taxes and other customs clearance fee or CNY20.00 per shipment, whichever is greater.
If payment is made on FedEx credit account billed by invoice in China, the service fee rate is 2% of the total advance payment of the customs duties, taxes and other customs clearance fee or CNY35.00 per shipment, whichever is greater.
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.
