We’ve all had our ups and downs with FedEx every once in a while. It is very important as a customer to read the service’s terms and conditions so as to know where you’re standing in case anything happens.

As a Fed Ex customer, you can file a claim for concealed loss, visible or concealed damage, delivery delays, payment delays (if this is the case), nondelivery, or misdelivery.

One should file a complaint within 21 calendar days; additionally, all supporting documentation must be filed within 9 months of the delivery date.
