FedEx is one of the top shipping companies both for shipping domestically and internationally. If you want to make sure your package gets to the intended destination on time and without any issues, FedEx is one of the top carriers to use.
Even if you are using a third party for shipping, they will most likely also send the package to FedEx as a carrier to ensure that your package can reach the right place at the right time.
Choose Your Destination
Not all items can be shipped internationally. Some are forbidden and will not be allowed through customs. If you are sending a package to an international destination, you will want to make sure that all the items you’re using will be allowed to go through customs.
Package the Item
Once you have determined that all your items can be safely shipped, you will need to package the items appropriately. Some items can fit into an envelope while other items are better for boxes. Make sure whatever you’re sending is packaged well so that it does not become damaged.
Choose Your Shipping Service
FedEx has many different options for shipping services. You can choose standard or priority depending on how quickly the other party needs the package. Some destinations also only offer one shipping service compared to other destinations that offer more.
Make sure you choose the right destination when you want to ship so that you know what is available to you.
Make Shipping Labels
You can make your own shipping label at home through the website. Make sure to enter all the information correctly including the names, addresses, and phone numbers. You can also prepay for it if you want.
Choose Additional Services If Needed
FedEx has additional services that you can explore. You can see if you need any such as wanting a signature upon delivery or if you want the package held at a certain location. You can skip this step if you do not need anything extra.
Print Your Label
Now you can print the label and attach it to the envelope or box. Make sure all the words and instructions are clearly visible.
Take the Package to FedEx
You can now bring the package to your local FedEx office and drop it off. If you do not prepay for the label, you will need to pay for shipping now.
