About FedEx International MailService


FedEx International MailService is a dedicated international mailing solution introduced by FedEx. FedEx is one of the most renowned carrier service providers in the world. In fact, brands like Walmart, ASUS, and DoorDash rely on FedEx to streamline their selling process. 

FIMS  allows you to ship low-value and low-weight mail and documents such as letters, letter packages, postcards, books, magazines, and other printed goods. It means the acceptable items must be less than or equal to 50 lbs and valued at around US $150 for dutiable items. In case the value goes up to $400, you need written approval from FedEx itself. 

As of now, FedEx International MailService is available in 200+ countries and territories across the globe. Served destinations include The Americas, Europe, Asia/Pacific, and Middle East/Africa. At the same time, FedEx partners with the postal authority of the destination country to speed up the delivery.

For collaboration with local service authorities, it eliminates the barrier of higher international shipping costs on items like apparel, beauty-related products, books, magazines, etc. Plus, FIMS offers its own packaging supplies and preprinted air waybills. So, consider it another opportunity to bring down your shipping costs. 

Once FedEx hands the package off to the local postal authority, it’ll then be their responsibility to deliver the package safely to the customer. However, it takes 4-7 days for premium FIMS service and 7-11 days for standard FIMS service to reach the package to the destination country’s postal service. After that, the final delivery timing will vary depending on the postal service’s terms and conditions. 

FIMS offers the FedEx International Mail View option. It allows you to track the status of shipments, especially to those countries that scan and report postal ID data. Nevertheless, the availability of this feature may vary accordingly depending on the country's rules. 

To access FedEx International Mail Service, you must have a FIMS agreement with FedEx. If you aren’t aware of this agreement, you can connect with the FedEx account executive to obtain it. 

So, if you want to expand your business to a wider audience, FIMS can be a frictionless and budget-friendly solution. Thankfully, with ClickPost’s Courier API Integration with FedEx International MailService, you can avail this opportunity in just a few clicks.
