Preparing to Send

Can I send Biological Substances with FedEx?

FedEx accepts shipments which contain Biological Substances and the requirements vary depending on two categories:

1. Category B Biological Substances (UN3373). The most common substances in this category are: blood, saliva, urine, faeces, crops, biopsies and umbilical cords. No Shippers Declaration is necessary if they are not considered as hazardous goods.

2. Infectious Biological Substances: These must be sent as a hazardous substance.
