For FedEx Ground Economy, which operates under the slowest transit times, parcels must be shipped by Dec. 13, FedEx said.
Shipments tendered to FedEx Express, FedEx’s air and international unit, for next-day delivery must ship by Dec. 21, though parcels can be shipped by Dec. 22 if Saturday delivery is requested. Packages moving in second-day delivery services must ship by Dec. 20, FedEx said.
Packages shipped via FedEx Freight, the company’s LTL unit, must ship by Dec. 21 if the customer requests one-day delivery under FedEx Freight’s priority service, which offers more expedited deliveries than the unit’s Economy service. Customers opting for two-day shipping must ship out their parcels by Dec. 21.
Shippers using the unit’s Economy service must arrange for shipping no later than Dec. 12 to ensure deliveries on or before Christmas Eve.
Last week, the U.S. Postal Service announced that holiday shipments using its Ground Advantage two- to five-day delivery service must ship no later than Dec. 16 to arrive by Christmas Eve. Shipments moving under the Postal Service’s Priority Mail two- to three-day delivery service must ship no later than Dec. 18. Customers using Priority Mail Express, the company’s next-day delivery service, must ship parcels no later than Dec. 20, the Postal Service said.
The schedule applies to shipments moving within the lower 48 states.
