What is FedEx SmartPost?

FedEx SmartPost is a method of shipping in which FedEx has teamed up with the U.S. Postal Service for a more efficient, and more cost-efficient way of getting our products to our customers.

By utilizing the U.S. Postal Service® (USPS) for final delivery, FedEx SmartPost reaches every U.S. address, including P.O. boxes and military APO, FPO and DPO destinations. You can even use FedEx SmartPost to ship to Alaska, Hawaii and all U.S. territories.

The greatest benefit of FedEx SmartPost compared to FedEx Ground service (other than the cheaper price!) is that it offers Saturday delivery, where FedEx Ground shipping DOES NOT.

FedEx SmartPost shipping advantages: state-of-the-art technology, 25 strategically located hubs, dock-door to doorstep pickup and delivery, zone-skipping expertise, and an alliance with the USPS — all work together to provide a streamlined process and reliable delivery.
