What is FedEx Ground and why isn't it available for everybody?
FedEx Ground service is determined by FedEx and relates to the areas that are within a 48 hour delivery window from our fulfillment center on the Chesapeake Bay. It carries the least expensive rates and is available to most of the East Coast.
Areas closest to us are able to get their boxes the next day via the Ground system (the blue area on the map above) while those a little further out (yellow area) have a 2 day delivery transit time with the same Ground service. Those in the red area on the map are outside the abilities of the Ground network to deliver their perishable box in a satisfactory condition and therefore must use the Air methods which rely on airplanes to expedite the shipment.
To find out specifically which services you qualify for, simply enter the delivery zip code for your package in the field below and press Submit.
