What are the current delivery area surcharges for FedEx?

Created:   |   Updated:

A delivery area surcharge applies for delivering packages to otherwise difficult to arrive areas. This means your package may have been sent to a satellite office prior to being delivered. Similar to a fuel surcharge, these charges can occasionally be unavoidable. 

As of 2015, these are the current prices you can expect to pay for delivery area surcharges with FedEx. Please refer to FedEx’s website for the most up to date information.
