Does FedEx Xray packages?

Because of the volume of shipments they manage every day, FedEx will not Xray domestic parcels shipped by road. However, due to customs regulations, most international FedEx parcels will be scanned when they are shipped internationally. In the US, all air cargo has to be screened before being shipped. Following US and EU regulations, packages and cargo are inspected and can be scanned in customs.

Clearance Delay when shipping with FedEx

Sometimes a package can get stuck at customs for multiple reasons. When this happens, FedEx will mark the delivery tracking with “Clearance delay”. This may happen simply because the volume of parcels is too high and FedEx is facing internal delay or because something is wrong with the parcel: it can be damaged, prohibited items can have been found during scanning or customs duties are waiting to be paid. One of the best ways to make sure FedEx will not take too long during customs clearance and delay your delivery is to hire a customs brokerage service. By doing so, an agent will always be on top of your FedEx delivery, making sure any setbacks that may happen during customs clearance get solved immediately. If you want more information on customs procedures, you can read our dedicated page.
