Customers expect shipment deliveries on time. If a delivery is delayed, customers may not order from the shipper again. Sometimes, they may not even raise a complaint but shippers may lose revenue and the trust of customers. Did you know that shipping carriers, such as UPS and FedEx, give a refund for late deliveries on request? If not, then read on and get to know about refunds given by FedEx, such as the FedEx Money-Back Guarantee.
What is FedEx Money-Back Guarantee?
FedEx is a multi-national parcel carrier that promises on-time delivery of packages. If a parcel delivery is delayed by 60 seconds or more, they promise a 100% refund on shipping charges. This refund policy offered by FedEx is known as FedEx Money-Back Guarantee (MBG). It is for small parcel services (Ground and Express) and is initiated only on shippers’ requests.

The shipments that have an exact delivery commitment time are entitled to refunds. To avail FedEx Money-Back Guarantee, shippers need to provide information such as:
- Tracking number
- The date of shipment
- Origin and Destination of the shipment
- Schedule date time
- Delivery date time
The submission of the claim should be within 15 calendar days from the invoice date.
