If you ship to Ecuador, Romania and/or Slovakia, please note that from 1 April 2019, you will need to use the correct postal codes and postal code formats when you ship to any of these three countries using your online FedEx automation solution.
From the effective date without correct postal code information you will no longer be able to generate a shipping label using your FedEx automation solution.
This change will help to prevent lost or abandoned shipments, enhancing our customer service, as well as satisfying regulatory compliance requirements.
Do you use the address book feature?
If you frequently use the address book feature or other recipient address source, please update any entries for these countries and save the correct postal code and format by March 31, 2019. We recommend updating your recipient delivery address information now to prevent issues with shipping label generation.
The following table shows the postal formats for these countries. Please note that Ecuador postal formats are also changing.
Postal Format Effective April 1, 2019
|LAC||XXXXXX (6 digits)*
||XXXXXX (6 digits)|

FedEx is committed to protecting the security and integrity of our network.
While there is no foolproof method to prevent the respected FedEx name from being used in spam emails or potential scams, we are constantly monitoring for such activity and work cooperatively with law enforcement agencies around the world.
We urge customers to be suspicious of any request not coming directly from a FedEx employee or domain name, especially if it contains an attachment which the customer is asked to open.
Customers should not hesitate to contact us if they have questions regarding the legitimacy of an email soliciting payment in advance or requests to provide additional or personal information.
