STEP 2
Input the information in your own commercial invoice template or in the one on FedEx Ship ManagerTM at fedex.com.

STEP 3

Tips TIPS

  1. You can search for a commercial invoice form at FedEx Global Trade Manager.

  2. A full description of goods is very important for clearance. You are recommended to include what is it made of and what is it used for. For example, Ladies' 100% silk knitted blouse.

  3. The Harmonized Code (HS) code helps save time in customs clearance. You can search for an HS code at FedEx Global Trade Manager.

  4. If a Commercial Invoice is needed for your shipment, it will be generated for you to print on the ‘Thank You’ page after you complete your shipment. Simply check the box for Commercial Invoice and click print.
