Choose the most cost-effective shipping options for your needs

Your customers don’t always need priority shipping, and FedEx has options for pretty much any shipping scenario and budget. Keep your shipping costs in check by only opting for premium services, like next-morning or day-definite shipping, when there’s a clear and urgent need. When needed, take advantage of delivery flexibility and consider FedEx International Economy® to help you save money on import and export shipping.
