Out of Delivery/Pick-up Area Surcharge

FedEx Express international shipments delivered to or picked up from remote and less-accessible locations are charged an out-of-delivery-area or out-of-pickup-area surcharge.

Effective January 18, 2021, certain international shipments to/from the U.S. will be assessed an out-of-delivery-area surcharge or an out-of-pickup-area surcharge for International Express Freight services based on the ZIP code location of the pick-up or delivery.

A list of postal codes and cities where these surcharges apply is available here.
 

Additional Handling Surcharge

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;

Effective January 18, 2021, Additional Handling Surcharge - Dimension will also apply to any package that measures greater than 266 centimeters in length and girth.

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 August 14, 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). 

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.

* Length is the longest side of a package.

 

Temporary Surcharge renamed as "Peak Surcharge" effective November 2, 2020

COVID-19 has disrupted supply chains, reducing air cargo capacity globally.  

This disruption has caused us to make adjustments to our networks which has increased our costs. As a result, we announced a 'Temporary Surcharge' on all FedEx Express and TNT international parcel and freight shipments beginning April 6, 2020.

Beginning November 2, 2020, the 'Temporary Surcharge' will be renamed as 'Peak Surcharge'.

 

Peak Surcharge Adjustment on FedEx Express International Services

We announced a peak surcharge on all FedEx Express international parcel and freight shipments beginning 6 April 2020.

We implemented this surcharge due to the various COVID-19 containment restrictions issued in countries around the world. These restrictions continue to disrupt the global supply chain. As a result, air cargo capacity is limited, and we are incurring incremental costs as we adjust our international networks to best deliver much-needed goods and services in this constrained environment.

From 30 November 2020 to 27 December 2020, the surcharge amount for some FedEx Express international parcel and freight shipments will increase. These increases will allow us to continue providing the best possible service during this time. Updated amounts can be found below.
