FedEx Home Delivery

For FedEx ground based service, they make a distinction between "Ground" and "Home Delivery" service, with different options.

This makes it hard to select a universal service that apply to all addresses.

Teapplix ActionShip uses the following rules when printing labels for FedEx Ground or Home delivery service.

  • If you select Ground, ActionShip will refuse to print on a residential address. This is due to the fact that switching to Home Delivery may involve more cost and you may want to review before doing so.
  • If you select Home Delivery, ActionShip will automatically switch to Ground service on a business address.
  • If you select Home Delivery on a residential address and the weight of the package is > 70 lbs, ActionShip will switch to Ground service. Note that in this case you will get a surcharge from FedEx
