Recurring FedEx Pickup
Do you send shipments on a regular schedule? If so, you can simplify your routine and plan ahead for recurring delivery needs with regularly scheduled pickups, including free express service. It’s a time-saving alternative to repeatedly dropping off shipments or making individual pickup requests.
If you’re shipping regularly but not every day, we now offer a more customizable solution, FedEx Express and FedEx Ground Automated Pickup.1 Your FedEx automation system2 alerts us when you’ve created the first shipment of the day and need a pickup. We’ll only come on days you need us and we'll waive your pickup fee during weeks with no pickups, saving you time and money.
Contact your FedEx account executive or call customer service at 1.800.GoFedEx 1.800.463.3339 to learn more and find out if recurring pickup service is the right option for you.*
You can also dropoff shipments at your convenience at a nationwide location.
- Dropoff shipments at any FedEx Ofﬁce® location.
- Dropoff shipments at a participating location including Walgreens, select grocery stores and more.
- Dropoff FedEx Express®, FedEx Ground® and FedEx SmartPost® shipments at our drop boxes 24/7.
