Effective March 30, 2020, FedEx Express will operate services to select postal codes across key cities in India. We’re continuing to make critical connections around the globe with our scheduled weekly flights to and from India, delivering strength to people and communities in need.
Where possible, FedEx will prioritize and support pickup, clearance and delivery of essential, critical COVID-19 related items and pharmaceutical shipments (testing kits, medicines, medical devices and bulk drugs/intermediaries) for both international and domestic services as allowed by the Government of India and local authorities. Please ensure the integrity of your temperature-sensitive shipment at origin owing to extended transit times and clearance delays at destination.
We continue to offer FedEx services as below:

- Inbound Services
For high value (greater than USD 1,500) cargo import shipments arriving into India, please use Broker Select Option (BSO). FedEx will issue a Delivery Order (DO) to your broker and it is the responsibility of the broker to customs clear at the three FedEx gateways (Mumbai, Delhi and Bengaluru) and deliver the shipment.FedEx continues to clear low value (less than USD 1,500) courier import shipments to India. Due to current restrictions, door to door delivery service is suspended. The consignee will be responsible for scheduling a time to collect the shipment from select FedEx locations by calling FedEx international customer care.
