FedEx is expanding solutions for global customers who need their critical deliveries to arrive as early as the start of the next business day.

This expansion brings the total number of origin markets to 97, and means customers can now use FedEx International First to ship packages from the above countries to any of the existing International First destination markets.


Depending on origin and destination, FedEx International First shipments arrive within one to three business days, often at the start of the business day. The service is most often used for business documents, electronic and high tech equipment, medical devices, clinical trials and gear for the entertainment industry and shipments that require delivery on a tight deadline.


Raj Subramaniam, Executive Vice President of Global Strategy, Communications and Marketing for FedEx Services, said: “This latest International First expansion highlights the FedEx commitment to serve our customers who need to ship critical, time-sensitive material.


“The expansion also aligns with our global growth strategy, and the need to stay ahead of customer demand.”


FedEx International First is a time-definite, customs cleared, door-to-door express service with a pre-defined delivery commitment for shipments up to 150 lbs. per package.


Customers receive International First deliveries as early as 8 a.m. in the United States, 9 a.m. in Europe, and 10 a.m. in Asia, Canada and Latin America. While the range of shipments is broad, it’s often the delivery service of choice for customers shipping time-sensitive materials.
