Additional Information for FedEx Express® Shipments 

FedEx International Broker Select shipments are routed to the FedEx in-bond location that serves your customs broker. If you choose to have us deliver the shipment to a recipient who is served by a different FedEx location (typically in a different metropolitan area), a fee applies. 

Declared value for carriage and customs limits vary by country. You may ship an unlimited number of commodities with FedEx International Broker Select using a single air waybill. In addition to all commodities acceptable for FedEx International Priority and FedEx International Economy, you may ship the following items using FedEx International Broker Select (but certain restrictions apply; please contact FedEx Customer Service at 1.800.463.3339 and say "international services" for destination requirements):

a.     Products from animals, marine life or fowl. When importing into the U.S., these products can be accepted with FedEx International Broker Select only if directed to one of these cities:

FedEx (or the broker selected by FedEx) will not advance or bill any duties and taxes if FedEx International Broker Select has been selected. FedEx (or the broker selected by FedEx) also reserves the right to clear the shipment if the broker cannot be determined or will not perform clearance, or if complete broker information is not provided (including name, address, phone number and postal code).

If FedEx clears the shipment, all terms and conditions of FedEx International Priority and FedEx International Economy apply. FedEx International Broker Select shipments are routed to the FedEx facility nearest to the broker that has been customs-approved for holding in-bond shipments.
