Minimum Billable Weight for FedEx Express Packaging
Effective Jan. 21, 2013 FedEx Express shipments packaged in FedEx Express boxes and tubes will be subject to a minimum billable. Minimum billable weight for FedEx Express tube is 4 kg. & for FedEx Boxes is 1 kg.
FedEx offers qualified businesses the convenience of charging all inbound and outbound shipping, customs duties, taxes and related fees on one account number. With a valid FedEx account, no cash is needed at the time of shipping or receiving packages.
If the recipient’s address is found to be incomplete or incorrect (e.g. incorrect postal codes, omitted apartment numbers or former street addresses for recipients who have relocated), or if a valid telephone number for the recipient is not provided on the air waybill, a special handling fee per address correction will be assessed.
For FedEx International Broker Select, the address correction surcharge will apply if the broker’s address is incomplete or incorrect on the Air Waybill or other shipping documentation. If we cannot determine the correct address or cannot reach the broker, we may attempt to contact the sender for address clarification or instructions to return the shipment. If we are unable to complete delivery under these circumstances, we will not be liable for failing to meet our delivery commitment.
Dimensional weight is calculated by multiplying the length by width by height of each package and dividing the total by 5,000 if the volume is in centimeters, or by 0.005 if the volume is in meters (the fractions of half a kilo are rounded off to the following half kilo).
Dimensional Weight =
Length(cm) x Width(cm) x Height(cm)
Duties & Taxes
To ensure the fastest delivery possible, FedEx prepays the assessed customs duty and taxes for your express shipments. And charge them to your FedEx Account.
All shipments are subject to an adjustable fuel surcharge. The surcharge percentage will be subject to adjustment monthly using a rounded average of the U.S. Gulf Coast (USGC) spot price for a gallon of kerosene-type jet fuel, as published monthly by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Changes to the FedEx Express fuel surcharge will be applied effective the first Monday of each month. The surcharge percentage will be reflected on your FedEx invoice. The percentage for each month will be available at fedex.com approximately two weeks before the surcharge is applicable.
Limits of Liability
The maximum liability for loss, damage or delay or any claim with regard to any shipment is limited to US$100 or US$20.00 per kg (whichever is greater), unless the shipper declares a greater value for carriage and pays an additional fee.
Invoices for transportation charges are payable within 30 days of the invoice date. Duties and taxes are charged to the FedEx Account.
