Does FedEx x-ray packages?

Because of the volume of shipments they manage every day, FedEx will not x-ray domestic parcels shipped by road. However, due to customs regulations, most international FedEx parcels will be scanned when they are shipped abroad. 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.

Customs with FedEx international courier services

A parcel can get stuck at customs for multiple reasons. When this happens, FedEx will mark the parcel 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 parcel delivery, ensuring any setbacks during customs clearance get solved immediately. Read more about how customs clearance works.
