Hold at FedEx Location
If you’re not sure of your loved one’s schedule, you can request to have your package delivered to a nearby FedEx location. The Hold at FedEx Location option is available — at no extra charge — at more than 2,400 FedEx locations nationwide. Hold at FedEx Location is available for your FedEx Express, FedEx Ground® and FedEx Home Delivery® shipments. Use any of these three ways to request this convenient option:

  • Designate Hold at FedEx Location when you create a shipping label.
  • Go to, enter your shipment tracking number and select “Hold at FedEx Location.”
  • Call 1.800.GoFedEx 1.800.463.3339.

Did your loved ones miss the attempted delivery to their home? They don’t need to wait for a follow-up delivery. They can simply follow the same steps using the door tag number to request the package be delivered to a nearby FedEx location. They pick up their package at their convenience. Many locations are open late, and some are open 24 hours.

If a telephone number is provided, we’ll try to contact the recipient after the package arrives at our facility. Packages will be held for up to five business days and are released only with proof of identification.
