FedEx International MailService®

International Shipping is Easy

Make connections all over the world

Taking your business global doesn’t have to be intimidating. All you need is a simple, affordable way to deliver international orders that eliminates work on your end and adds satisfaction on your customer’s end.

FedEx International MailService is a contract-only service that helps you tap into worldwide opportunities by helping you save money through shipment consolidation, cut down on paperwork, and meet delivery expectations for your customers.

Why It’s Easy

Global reach. FedEx International MailService is available to nearly every address in 190 countries, with final delivery through the destination country’s postal system.

Less work for you. Simply consolidate your packages, label the bag, and have your FedEx courier pick it up. We’ll sort, stamp, and deliver the packages to your customers, leveraging the destination country’s postal system — so you can spend more time on the day-to-day operations that make your business successful.

Simple integration. You can integrate FedEx International MailService into your online platform without additional coding or IT support.

Shipment activity reports. You can get customized shipment reports that detail the nature of your mailings for any given period of time to help with planning, budgeting, and auditing your shipment activity.

Delivery at your speed

Whether you need us to handle your mail weekly, daily, or twice a year, count on efficient handling and processing for timely, reliable delivery.

Premium Delivery — With premium delivery, you can set delivery expectations for your customers with global tracking from FedEx International Mail View®, which uses seven bar code scans throughout your shipment’s journey to allow you to track its status. You’ll know when it’s leaving the U.S., entering the foreign market, arriving on your customer’s doorstep, and more steps in-between.

Standard delivery — When cost savings are more important than delivery times, use this option. Transit time is typically 7 to 11 international business days — from FedEx® pickup to handoff to the destination country’s postal authority.*

Customized service — Offer a full range of customizable solutions for both time-sensitive and general mail. Contact us to set up your customized service.

*Date of final delivery to the recipient depends on the destination country’s postal system and varies by country and service selected.
