This guarantee can be suspended or revoked at our sole discretion without prior notice to you. We will, at our option, and upon request, either refund or credit to the applicable invoice only your transportation charges if we deliver a shipment 60 seconds or more after the applicable delivery commitment time. Offer void where prohibited by law.
The following limitations apply:
A. Where customs or other regulatory agency clearances are delayed due to errors or omissions in your documentation, our delivery commitment time is modified by adding one business day for each day (or portion thereof) that such clearances are delayed. The money-back guarantee does not apply in the event of other customs or regulatory delays.
B. An exact delivery commitment time can be obtained only by telephoning International Customer Service and supplying us with all of the following:
Commodity being shipped
Date of the shipment
Weight of the shipment
Value of the shipment
Any transit time published in the FedEx Service Guide or elsewhere, or quoted by Customer Service without the above five required facts, is only an estimate and is not a stated delivery commitment time.
C. If the sender or recipient specifies a customs broker other than FedEx or the broker selected by FedEx (where this service is available), notification may be given to the broker by 12 p.m. on the first business day the shipment is available for customs clearance in the destination country/territory, and such notification constitutes timely delivery. If the actual shipment is released to the broker in-bond, our responsibility terminates at the time we relinquish custody of the shipment to the broker. However, if we retain custody of the shipment and are requested to deliver the shipment, following receipt of the appropriate customs release paperwork from another customs broker following customs or other regulatory clearances, our delivery commitment time is modified by adding one business day for each day (or portion thereof) that our receipt of the paperwork is delayed.
D. To qualify for a refund or credit due to a service failure, you must notify us of the service failure and request a refund or credit of your transportation charges in compliance with the conditions listed below. If you do not comply with these conditions, you are not entitled to receive a refund or credit and cannot recover compensation for a service failure in any lawsuit.
Requests for refund or credit of transportation charges due to a service failure must be submitted in writing to the local FedEx Customer Service Department.
Your notification of a service failure must include your FedEx account number, if any, the air waybill or package FedEx tracking number, the shipment weight, the date of the shipment, and the recipient's name, address and postal code.
All requests for refund or credit of transportation charges must be received via one of the approved channels within 15 calendar days of the invoice date or within 15 calendar days from the ship date if you are paying by credit card or in advance by cash, check or money order.
A partial payment against an invoice is not considered a request for invoice adjustment or notice of a refund request. A notification of the reason for an unpaid charge with your payment is not considered a request for an invoice adjustment or notice of a refund request if the reason relates to a service failure.
E. Notification of a service failure must include the account number, if any, the air waybill number or FedEx tracking number, the date of shipment, and complete recipient information.
F. A credit or refund under our money-back guarantee policy will be applied only against charges for the shipment giving rise to the credit.
G. A service failure will not be deemed to have occurred if after you notify us we provide you with:
Proof of timely delivery, consisting of the date and time of delivery, and name of the person who signed for the shipment, or
Service-exception information reflecting that the failure to deliver timely resulted from circumstances described under the Liabilities Not Assumed section.
H. We are not obligated to respond if your request is not received within the time limits stated above.
I. A service failure will not be deemed to have occurred if a bill-to account number was provided at the time of shipment that was not in good credit standing and the package was held until alternative payment arrangements were secured.
J. Only one refund or credit is permitted per package. In the case of multiple-package shipments, this money-back guarantee will apply to every package in the shipment. If a service failure occurs for any package within the shipment, a refund or credit will be given only for the portion of the transportation charges applicable to that package.
K. A refund or credit will be given only if complete recipient information was provided at the time of tender to FedEx. Complete recipient information must be provided on either the air waybill or through any FedEx electronic shipping device.
L. A refund or credit will not be given for shipments delayed due to incorrect addresses or to the unavailability or refusal of a person to accept delivery, whether or not the package is returned to the shipper, or sign for the package, or due to any of the causes described under the Liabilities Not Assumed section.
M. This money-back guarantee does not apply to requests for invoice adjustment based on overcharges (see the Billing section) or shipments to P.O. box addresses acceptable for delivery.
N. This money-back guarantee applies only to transportation charges and does not apply to duties, taxes or other charges, including ancillary service fees.
O. A refund or credit will not be given to customers using FedEx electronic shipping devices if incorrect FedEx tracking numbers are applied to the subject package or shipment.
P. This money-back guarantee applies to shipments tendered under FedEx International First, FedEx International Next Flight, FedEx International Priority, FedEx International Priority Freight, FedEx International Economy, FedEx International Economy Freight, FedEx International Priority DirectDistribution, FedEx International Priority DirectDistribution Freight, FedEx International Priority Plus, FedEx International Premium, FedEx International Broker Select and FedEx 10kg Box and FedEx 25kg Box.
Q. The money-back guarantee for shipments destined for our extended service areas applies only to the portion of the transportation provided directly by us.
R. This money-back guarantee does not apply to FedEx International MailService.
S. For FedEx International Priority DirectDistribution and FedEx International Priority DirectDistribution Freight, the money-back guarantee for shipment delays is prorated based on the number and weight of packages within the shipment where delivery is not completed by the service commitment.

U. This money-back guarantee does not apply to delays in delivery caused by adherence to FedEx policies regarding the payment of duties and taxes prior to customs clearance or at delivery.
V. For FedEx International Broker Select shipments, if the sender or recipient specifies a customs broker other than FedEx or our designated broker (where this option is available) and if the shipment is to be released to the designated broker in-bond, our delivery commitment is met if we notify the broker of the availability of the shipment by 12 p.m. on the first business day the shipment is scheduled to be available for customs clearance in the destination country/territory.
However, if the sender or recipient specifies a customs broker other than FedEx or our designated broker and we retain custody of the shipment and are responsible for the delivery of the shipment following receipt of the appropriate customs release paperwork from another customs broker, our delivery commitment time is modified by adding one business day for each day (or portion thereof) that our receipt of such customs release paperwork is delayed due to inspection, sampling requirements, errors or omissions in your documentation, or acts, errors or omissions by the customs broker designated by the sender or recipient.
FedEx International Broker Select shipments for which we fail to meet the delivery commitments described in section V above are eligible for our money-back guarantee subject to the terms and conditions of our money-back guarantee policy.
W. Credits for transportation charges will be applied to the payer's account only, and refunds will be made payable to the payer only.
X. The money-back guarantee will not apply to shipments scheduled for delivery on December 19-24 if the shipment was delivered within 90 minutes of the published delivery commitment time for the selected service and destination.
Y. Holidays in international locations will affect our transit times. Contact International Customer Service for information on delivery commitments that may be affected due to the observance of these holidays. Deliveries normally scheduled to be made on the day of holiday observance will be rescheduled for delivery on the next business day. The delivery commitment for application of the money-back guarantee policy will be extended for a period equal to the length of the holiday.
Z. There are no delivery commitments for shipments on which the money-back guarantee is suspended.
AA. No refund or credit will be provided if an international freight shipment was not booked as required.

Dangerous Goods are commodities that, when transported, pose some form of danger to people, animals, the environment, or the carrier. Dangerous goods can be either acceptable or unacceptable for shipping. The latest list of Dangerous Goods can be accessed at www.iata.org
There are nine classifications of Dangerous Goods that identify the type of danger each possesses. These are grouped into categories called accessible and inaccessible which determine the FedEx Service you can ship with.
Accessible vs. Inaccessible Dangerous Goods
Certain Dangerous Goods shipments must be accessible to the flight crew in-flight. These are categorized as Accessible Dangerous Goods (ADG). Inaccessible Dangerous Goods (IDG) do not need to be loaded so they are accessible to the flight crew in-flight.
Depending upon the Dangerous Goods category, FedEx Express offers a number of shipping options.
On this Air Waybill, "we," "our," "us," and "FedEx" refer to Federal Express Corporation, its subsidiaries, branches, and controlled entities, and their respective employees, agents, and independent contractors. "You" and "your" refer to the shipper and its employees, principals, and agents. If your shipment originates outside the United States, your contract of carriage is with the FedEx subsidiary, branch, controlled entity, or independent contractor who originally accepts the shipment from you.
"Package" means any container or envelope that is accepted by us for delivery, including any such items tendered by you utilizing our automated systems, meters, manifests, or waybills. "Shipment" means all packages which are tendered to and accepted by us on a single Air Waybill. Agreement to Terms By giving us your shipment, you agree, regardless of whether you sign the front of this Air Waybill, for yourself or as an agent for and on behalf of any other person having an interest in this shipment, to all terms on this NON-NEGOTIABLE Air Waybill, and as appropriate to all terms in any FedEx transportation agreement between you and FedEx covering this shipment, and in any applicable tariff, and in our current Service Guide or Standard Conditions of Carriage, copies of which are available upon request. If there is a conflict between the Air Waybill and any such document then in effect, the transportation agreement, tariff, Service Guide, or Standard Conditions of Carriage will control, in that order of priority. No one is authorized to alter or modify the terms of our agreement. This Air Waybill shall be binding on us when the shipment is accepted; we may mark this Air Waybill with an employee number as our signature, or our printed name shall be sufficient to constitute our signature of this Air Waybill.
You warrant that each article in the shipment is properly described on this Air Waybill and any export documents, acceptable for transport by us, and properly marked, addressed (including postal code), and packed to ensure safe transportation with ordinary care in handling. You are responsible for all charges and possible surcharges, customs duties and assessments including fees related to our prepayment of the same, governmental penalties and fines, taxes, and our lawyers' fees and legal costs, related to this shipment.
Air Carriage Notice
If the carriage of your shipment by air involves an ultimate destination or stop in a country/territory other than the country/territory of departure, the Warsaw Convention and any of its subsequent amendments and protocols ("Warsaw Convention") may be applicable and govern and in most cases limit our liability for loss, damage, delay, shortage, misdelivery, nondelivery, misinformation, or failure to provide information in connection with your shipment.
In certain countries/territories, the Warsaw Convention limits our liability to US$9.07 per pound (US$20.00 per kilogram) (or the equivalent in local currency), unless you declare a higher value for carriage as described below. There are no stopping places which are agreed at the time of tender of the shipment, and we reserve the right to route the shipment in any way we deem appropriate.
Notice Shipments transported partly or solely by road, be there an explicit agreement to do so or not, into or from a country/territory that is a party to the Convention on the Contract for International Carriage of Goods by Road (the "CMR") are subject to the terms and conditions of the CMR, notwithstanding any other provisions referred to or in this Air Waybill to the contrary, except that the higher limitations of liability as set forth in these conditions shall remain applicable as opposed to those set forth in the CMR.
Limitation of Liability
If not governed by the Warsaw Convention, the CMR, or any other international treaties, laws, other governmental regulations, orders, or requirements, our maximum liability for loss, damage, delay, shortage, misdelivery, nondelivery, misinformation, or failure to provide information in connection with your shipment is limited by this Air Waybill to US$100 per shipment or US$9.07 per pound (US$20.00 per kilogram) (or the equivalent in local currency), whichever is greater, unless you declare a higher value for carriage as described below.
If you declare a higher value, you must pay an additional charge for each additional US$100 (or the equivalent in local currency) of declared value for carriage. Please call us or refer to our rate sheets in effect at the time of shipment for an explanation of the additional charge.
If you declare a higher value for carriage and pay the additional charge, our maximum liability will be the lesser of your declared value for carriage or your actual damages. We do not provide cargo liability or all-risk insurance.
Declared Value Limits
The highest declared value we allow for a FedEx Envelope or FedEx Pak shipment is US$100 or US$9.07 per pound (US$20.00 per kilogram) (or the equivalent in local currency), whichever is greater. For other shipments, in particular shipments of extraordinary value, including but not limited to jewelry, artwork, antiques, precious metals, and furs and fur clothing, the declared value of carriage is limited and depends on the contents and the destination of the shipment.
Please check our Service Guide, our Standard Conditions of Carriage, or any applicable tariff for an explanation of the declared value limits.
If you send more than one package using a single Air Waybill, the declared value for carriage of each package will be determined by dividing the total declared value for carriage by the number of packages in the shipment.
