FEDEX EXPRESS

FEDEX EXPRESS

FedEx Express, one of the UK’s Business Superbrands has been consistently ranked among the world's most admired and respected transportation companies. Now the world’s largest express transportation company, FedEx Express successfully provides businesses worldwide with a broad portfolio of transportation, e-commerce and business services. At FedEx Express, our business emphasis is fast and effective customs clearance, sophisticated real-time shipment tracking and signed proof of delivery for every shipment sent and received.

With more than 290,000 employees, our own dedicated fleet of 672 aircraft and 42,000 vehicles, FedEx Express is ‘absolutely, positively’ focused on delivering the highest ethical and professional standards to meet the transportation needs of customers worldwide.

SHIPPING FREIGHT WORLDWIDE SINCE 1973

Moving many types of freight from aerospace and aviation parts, equipment and electronics to military hardware, heat exchangers and other oversized goods quickly and reliably around the globe requires extensive international freight expertise. With profit margins tight, costs and competition mounting, and both customers and manufacturers pressuring you to add more value to your freight services, there is no room for error.

Customs clearance, import and export regulations, documentation and classification, tariffs, and currency exchange must all be expertly navigated. You’re judged not by the obstacles you face but by the results you deliver. To manage everything is literally a big load and FedEx Express is the transportation company that can take that load off your shoulders.

INTERNATIONAL EXPRESS SERVICES

FedEx Express has a fully automated worldwide network dedicated to providing express shipping door-to-door delivery worldwide to 220 countries in 1–3 business days. This gives you faster, more reliable access to many more international markets internationally with flexible delivery options tailored to meet scenario-specific freight requirements.

Our constantly expanding express services include International Priority – a highly reliable, express, time-definite, customs-cleared, door-to-door service for worldwide shipments up to 68kg per unit and International Priority Freight - an express, time-definite, customs-cleared delivery service for heavyweight freight between 68kg and 1,000kg per item to and from more than 130 countries and territories worldwide. Each service is backed by the FedEx Money-Back Guarantee which demonstrates the confidence we have in meeting our commitment for the on-time express delivery of your shipment.

DANGEROUS GOODS TRANSPORTATION

FedEx is an IATA member and a world leader in shipping dangerous freight, hazardous substances or materials packed in dry ice. Our express, door-to-door, customs-cleared service to key European, North American and Asian markets includes a comprehensive service from Europe into 48 countries worldwide with precision handling by trained specialists. FedEx Express also has wide-ranging defence industry experience in military clearance, helping export goods into difficult areas in support of military forces and working closely with military suppliers.

CUSTOMS CLEARANCE

Every country has its own shipping import regulations and documentation requirements. The US, for instance, has export restrictions for certain high-speed radar instruments, technology with potential military applications and similarly sensitive freight. Small errors in customs clearance mean big delays that no-one can afford when your customers are counting on urgent replacement parts or other critical freight. FedEx Express can help your shipment clear customs without delays by:

  • Advising on which country and product-specific international documents, commodity codes, certificates and declarations to download and complete for your shipments
     
  • Giving you estimates of the duties and taxes relating to each shipment
     
  • Enabling compliance with relevant international regulations through FedEx Regulatory Consulting Group
     
  • Enabling you to ship various commodities under one international express air waybill for real economies of scale
     
  • Creating additional cost savings by enabling you to ship loose pieces (up to 68 kg each) or multiple skids (over 68 kg each) as one consolidated shipment that clears customs as a single unit, and then is de-consolidated for delivery to individual recipients in the destination country

AUTOMATED SHIPPING TOOLS

To meet the commitments you make to your customers and to manage inventory levels more efficiently, knowing exactly where your shipments are at all times is crucial. FedEx Express provides a full range of shipping tools free of charge to help you control all your shipping activity. Whether you work in a large corporation or a small business, FedEx Ship Manager® at www.fedex.com/gb enables you to manage your entire shipping process online, saving time and making the whole process much easier:

  • Find step-by-step instructions for preparing and printing shipping customs documentation
     
  • Schedule pick-ups
     
  • Get rates and transit times, store contacts and shipping profiles online
     
  • Proactively track inbound, outbound and third-party shipments in real time 24 hours a day to help you provide better service to your customers
     
  • Get automatic email notification of critical shipping events such as customs delays so you can take action
     
  • Receive signed Proof of Delivery for every shipment sent and received

CAREFUL HANDLING FOR SENSITIVE SHIPMENTS

Defence equipment and parts come in all shapes, sizes and weights. High-value instruments need precise handling to minimise the risk of damage during shipment. Electrical components can be sensitive to the point of delicate and need the same kind of secure transportation for optimum performance. To meet these and many other challenges, FedEx Express provides a variety of precision shipping and handling solutions that let you:

  • Arrange for safe door-to-door delivery of delicate or high-security freight and other shipments requiring timing and handling expertise beyond the norms of standard shipping through the FedEx Custom Critical® network
     
  • Research, design and test custom-engineer packaging solutions for complex product needs at the FedEx Packaging Lab
     
  • Send oversize shipments to difficult-to-access locations
     
  • Safely ship materials deemed dangerous freight within a controlled network, including both accessible and inaccessible dangerous goods
     
  • Ship large, irregular, one-of-a-kind pieces without worrying about rejection due to broken packaging

Whatever your requirement, whatever the destination, whatever the timeframe, at FedEx Express, our unrivalled worldwide delivery network can give you and your customers complete service reassurance from pick-up to proof of delivery.
