Urgent Freight Delivery? Put Us to Work on Saturday

Imagine you receive an urgent message. One of your biggest clients needs a freight delivery as soon as possible. Every second counts. There’s only one problem: It’s Friday afternoon.

“No problem,” you say. “How’s tomorrow sound?”

Ship freight on Saturdays

Offering Saturday pickup and Saturday delivery means you have 52 more potential business days every year to get your urgent shipment where it needs to be. And a faster supply chain means less inventory costs, quicker invoicing and more satisfied customers.

Great news for freight shippers: It just got easier than ever to beat the competition.

Now FedEx Express® Freight  Saturday services coverage has expanded to an additional 1,100 ZIP codes across 93 U.S. markets. This means that more U.S. businesses than ever before have access to fast, reliable, time-definite Saturday freight shipping.

Plus, for your international U.S.-inbound shipments, Saturday delivery is available in major markets via FedEx International Priority® Freight.
