Tips TIPS

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

  2. A full decsiption 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. An HS code helps save time in customs clearance. You can search for an HS code at FedEx Global Trade Manager.

  4. If you use FedEx Ship ManagerTM at fedex.com to prepare your shipment, please upload your documents or use FedEx-generated documents and select "Yes, I want FedEx to send my invoice electronically" to turn on the Electronic Trade Documents service. Once you have used it, it will be saved for future use so that you can get a head start with customs clearance and avoid any potential delays.

  5. 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.
