Preparing to Send

What is Declared Value for Carriage and how is it calculated?

FedEx does not provide cargo liability or all-risk insurance but the Sender may pay an additional charge for Declared Value for Carriage above the standard limits of liability.

The Sender should refer to the FedEx rate sheets in effect at the time of shipment or call FedEx for an explanation of the additional charge.

The Declared Value for Carriage of any Package represents FedEx maximum liability in connection with a shipment of that Package, including but not limited to, any loss, damage, delay, misdelivery, any failure to provide information, or misdelivery of information relating to the Shipment.

Exposure to and risk of any loss in excess of the Declared Value for Carriage is assumed by the Sender.

Customers are advised to contact their insurance agent or broker for insurance coverage.
