If you have already booked your Priority Overnight label, the guaranteed time of arrival (GTA) will be displayed in the lower right quadrant of the label. For most addresses, Priority Overnight packages will arrive by 10:30 a.m for business addresses and 12:00 pm noon for residential addresses.
You may only ship Monday - Thursday for delivery on Tuesday - Friday.
NO DELIVERY on Saturday or Sunday.
DO NOT send a live aquatics package on Friday.
In some outlying areas, Priority Overnight packages are delivered by noon for business addresses and 4:30 pm for residential addresses. In remote rural areas, Priority Overnight packages are delivered by 4:30 pm or end of day.
Use the Quick Quote feature on our home page to check the GTA before you book.
You will also find the GTA listed during the booking process for your label. And it will be printed on the label itself.
Businesses often have morning drop-offs. If morning delivery is essential, consider sending your package to a business address.
When you are shipping live aquatics, it is important that your recipient be available to receive your package in person, no matter when it arrives.
If you require delivery confirmation, the recipient must be alert, ready and waiting for the FedEx driver. You do not want the package going back onto the truck for delivery the next day.
If you do not require delivery confirmation, tell your recipient to check all around the house to make sure the package does not sit outside.
Do not ship live animals to Hawaii.
Special note for Alaska
Due to limited FedEx services, certain zip codes in Alaska require one or more additional days for pickup and delivery of Priority Overnight shipments.
Go to FedEx Rates & Transit Tool and entering the ZIP code you intend to ship to. Select “Get quick quote” to know if additional time will be required to deliver your package.
