Additional Handling Surcharge

Effective January 20, 2020, an Additional Handling Surcharge applies to any package that meets any of the following criteria:

Dimensions
A surcharge applies to a shipment containing any package that:

1) measures greater than 121 centimeters along its longest side;

2) measures greater than 76 centimeters along its second-longest side;

Package shape and dimensions may change during transit, which can affect the package’s surcharge eligibility. If the dimensions change during transit, FedEx may make appropriate adjustments to the shipment charges at any time.

Freight

A surcharge applies to a shipment containing any freight handling unit that measures greater than 157 centimeters along its longest side.

We reserve the right to assess additional handling charges for freight and any freight handling unit that requires special handling during transit.

 

Oversize Charge

Effective January 20, 2020, an oversize charge applies to a shipment containing packages that exceed 243 centimeters in length or 330 centimeters in length and girth (L+2W+2H).

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.

Duty Handling Fee

Effective June 1, 2020, for all import shipments with a customs declaration where the duties and taxes equal RM 50 or above, the Duty Handling Fee will be incurred at a minimum of RM 50 or 2% of the duty and tax, whichever is greater. In compliance with the Sales and Service tax requirement the Duty Handling fee will have a 6% service tax.

The Duty Handling Fee will not be applied to import shipments that have duties and taxes less than RM 50. In addition, inbound shipments to the Free Commercial Zone (FCZ) are fully exempt from duty and tax and shipments to a bonded area will not incur the Duty Handing Fee.
