Updated Aug. 18, 2020: Seasonal Peak Surcharges and Fees

FedEx continues to keep commerce moving and delivering critical shipments to homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.

As the impact of the virus continues to generate a surge in residential deliveries, we are entering this holiday peak season with extremely high demand for capacity and are experiencing increased operating costs across our network. We anticipate residential volume to continue to surge into the new year.

To continue providing our customers with the best possible service during this challenging time, we are implementing the following surcharges and fees.

Peak — Residential Delivery Charge 

Customers at the enterprise level who meet a certain volume threshold (as indicated below) will be charged  a Peak — Residential Delivery Charge for packages shipped during Nov. 2, 2020–Jan.17, 2021. The scope of a customer's volume shall be determined by FedEx in its sole discretion. The Peak — Residential Delivery Charge will be assessed in addition to the customer’s Residential Delivery Charge. Any contracted discount or cap the customer may have on the Residential Delivery Charge will not apply to the Peak — Residential Delivery Charge. For invoicing purposes, this charge will be combined with the customer’s Residential Delivery Charge. Your FedEx sales representative will reach out to you regarding how it may impact you.

  • For customers who ship more than 35,000 weekly average packages (total for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground U.S. domestic — including FedEx SmartPost® — residential and commercial combined) from Oct. 5, 2020–Oct. 18, 2020, the Peak — Residential Delivery Charge reflected in the chart below will apply Nov. 2, 2020–Dec. 13, 2020. The amount charged per package will be based on a Peaking Factor, calculated as weekly average packages shipped Oct. 5, 2020–Oct. 18, 2020, divided by weekly average packages shipped Feb. 3, 2020–March 1, 2020, multiplied by 100. Peaking Factor and amount charged are determined separately for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground.

  • For customers who ship more than 35,000 weekly average packages (total for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground U.S. domestic — including FedEx SmartPost — residential and commercial combined) from Nov. 16, 2020–Nov. 29, 2020,*, the Peak — Residential Delivery Charge reflected in the chart below will apply Dec. 14, 2020–Jan. 17, 2021. The amount charged per package will be based on a Peaking Factor, calculated as weekly average packages shipped Nov. 16, 2020–Nov. 29, 2020,* divided by weekly average packages shipped Feb. 3, 2020–March 1, 2020, multiplied by 100. Peaking Factor and amount charged are determined separately for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground.
    *For weeks with holidays, weekly average value will be prorated based on the FedEx normal operating days during non-holiday weeks.

  • Customers whose average weekly volume during the holiday peak season (Nov. 2, 2020–Jan. 17, 2021) is expected to exceed 35,000 packages (total for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground U.S. domestic — including FedEx SmartPost — residential and commercial combined) and who have a Peaking Factor greater than 200% will be contacted by their FedEx sales representative to discuss the impact of this charge.

Updated Nov. 2, 2020

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

We implemented this surcharge due to the various COVID-19 containment restrictions issued in countries around the world. Those restrictions are disrupting 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.

This surcharge does not apply to domestic shipments.

Beginning Nov. 2, the name of the surcharge will change from Temporary Surcharge to Peak Surcharge.​
