On March 24th (Thursday), 2022, FedEx Express has eliminated the “out-of-pickup-area surcharge” for Japan outbound shipments except for the entire Okinawa prefecture. Hereafter, you will no longer be charged the out-of-pickup-area surcharge for the shipment from Hokkaido to Kyushu (excluding the entire Okinawa prefecture).

As you may know, FedEx international shipments picked up from the remote and less-accessible locations are assessed an out-of-pickup-area surcharge. After this notice, FedEx users in Japan located any parts from Hokkaido to Kyushu will not have to pay this surcharge.

If you have any questions, please contact your FedEx account manager or EC-Sales-JP@fedex.com.

⚠ Note: Out-of-pickup-area surcharge will still be displayed when requesting for an estimate FedEx shipping fee in Ship&co application, but there will be no actual charge from FedEx.
