Package Information - Domestic Shipment

Note: For an international shipment, see Package Information - International Shipment.

Quantity (Qty): Enter the quantity of packages. You may enter 1 to 25 packages.

Weight: Weight is required to determine the rate quote and transit time of your shipment. You may enter the weight in lbs. or kg. You may enter fractional weights up to one decimal place (e.g., 15.6 lb).

For FedEx Express Freight shipments, you are required to enter skid weight instead of package weight.

Please refer to the appropriate FedEx Service Guide for maximum weights allowed based on which service and package type you use for your shipment. Weight limits may vary by country.

Package Type: For FedEx Express shipments, select the type of packaging from the drop-down menu. For FedEx Ground shipments, you are required to select Your packaging from the drop-down menu.

You do not need to indicate packaging type for FedEx Express Freight shipments. Skid is the default packaging type.

Dimensions: Dimensions are the length, width and height of your package. Although not required for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground shipments, entering package dimensions helps FedEx provide the most accurate rate quote and transit time possible. You do not have to complete these fields if you are using FedEx ® packaging. You are required to enter skid measurements for FedEx Express Freight shipments. You can enter dimensions in inches or centimeters.

Note: When the dimensional weight of a shipment exceeds the actual weight, shipping charges are based on the shipment's dimensional weight. If your shipment has a large size to weight ratio, it may be subject to this calculation and shown on the additional Notes section of the Results page. You can use the FedEx Measurement Tools to calculate your dimensional weight or access fedex.com.
  • Length = The longest side of your package.
  • Width = The next longest side of your package.
  • Height = The shortest side of your package.
  • Length and Girth = length plus twice the height plus twice the width.
If the dimension includes a fraction of .5 or greater, it will be rounded up to the next whole number. If the dimension includes a fraction less than .5, it will be rounded down to the next whole number.

Carriage Value: The Carriage Value is the selling price or replacement cost of your shipment's contents, which is the maximum liability in connection with a shipment of that package including, but not limited to, any loss, damage, delay, misdelivery, nondelivery, misinformation, failure to provide information or misdelivery of information relating to the shipment.

Although it is not required, entering the Carriage Value of your shipment helps FedEx provide the most accurate rate quote and transit time possible. When you enter a Carriage Value, you may select a currency type from the drop-down menu provided.

For information about Carriage Value for FedEx shipments, including maximum declared value limits, see the FedEx Service Guide or contact FedEx Customer Service at 1.800.GoFedEx (1.800.463.3339).
