What is the dangerous goods surcharge?

Service Definition Fees(2) (EUR)
Dangerous Goods(1)

Only available on Express Services.

FedEx Express Dangerous Goods services allow the shipping of regulated dangerous substances and materials including door-to-door delivery and customs clearance.

Applicable fee depends on the Dangerous Goods type:

• Accessible Dangerous Goods (ADG)
The content of package must be accessible during transit for security reasons.

• Inaccessible Dangerous Goods (IDG)
The content of package does not have to be accessed during transit and can be mixed with other freight.

• Dry Ice (DI)
Dry ice is a hazardous commodity that requires special handling, subject to simplified regulations. This means it can be offered in locations where fully regulated Dangerous Goods services are not offered.

In case a shipment contains both Dry Ice and Dangerous Goods, only the respective Dangerous Goods surcharge applies.

Please refer to FedEx Express Conditions of Carriage ( and the Dangerous Goods section on

• ADG:
- Parcel (IP): €68/shipment
- Freight (IPF): €1,10/kg(3)
• IDG:
- Parcel (IP): €45/shipment
- Freight (IPF): €0,66/kg(3)
• DI:
- Parcel (IP): €11/shipment
- Freight (IPF): €0,20/kg(3)
