Start claiming your FedEx refunds today.

FedEx guarantees an on time delivery for every domestic shipment. According to FedEx money back guarantee, if your delivery is delayed even by 60 seconds, you are entitled to a full FedEX refund of your shipping cost.

Though FedEx refunds is a great policy, the catch is that FedEx will provide these refunds only if the claim for every late delivery is requested by the shipper within a limited time period. Moreover, you have to track every shipment, identify delayed packages and submit claims to FedEx for every late shipment making the entire process cumbersome and laborious.

LateShipment is the one stop solution for all your shipping woes. LateShipment offers an automated tracking system that continuously monitors your shipments for late deliveries and submits claim for every eligible late shipment to FedEx on your behalf. Signing up with us takes less than two minutes. We can start tracking your shipments immediately and fetch FedEx refunds for every eligible late shipment. FedEx will automatically credit the refunds to your shipping invoice.

Late Delivery Refunds Policy as described on FedEx Website

Money-Back Guarantee Policy

We offer a money-back guarantee for our services. This guarantee can be suspended, modified or revoked at our sole discretion without prior notice to you.


The following limitations apply:

  • Credits for transportation charges will be applied to the payer’s account only, and refunds will be made payable to the payer only.
  • Only one refund or credit is permitted per package. In the case of multiple-piece shipments, the money-back guarantee applies to each package in the shipment. If a service failure occurs for any package within the shipment, a refund or credit will be given only for the portion of the transportation charges applicable to that package.
  • The money-back guarantee for package services destined for areas outside our primary service areas applies only to the portion of the transportation provided directly by us. The money-back guarantee for FedEx Express Freight services destined for areas outside our primary service areas applies to the portion of the transportation provided directly by us and may also apply to the portion of the transportation provided by the cartage agent (see the Cartage Agent section for details).
  • Shipments scheduled for delivery on a holiday will be delivered the next business day. Observance of local holidays (e.g., Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day) may cause delivery delays. In both circumstances, the delivery commitment for application of the money-back guarantee policy will be extended for a period equal to the length of the holiday.
  • If a future delivery is requested using FedEx Delivery Manager before the first delivery attempt is made, the delivery commitment for application of the moneyback guarantee policy will be adjusted to account for the requested delivery date and/or time.
  • Exceptions

    FedEx will not be obligated to refund or credit your transportation charges if:

  • We provide you with proof of timely delivery, consisting of the date and time of delivery and, if applicable, the name of the person who signed for the shipment, or service-exception information reflecting that the failure to deliver timely resulted from circumstances described under the Liabilities Not Assumed section.
  • The service failure resulted, in whole or in part, from any of the circumstances described under the Liabilities Not Assumed section.
  • The payer’s FedEx account number was not in good credit standing, or payment instructions were invalid, and delivery was delayed until payment arrangements were secured.
  • The shipment was scheduled for delivery on the Wednesday immediately prior to Thanksgiving or during the seven calendar days before Christmas Day via any FedEx Express U.S. or FedEx Express Freight U.S. service, and was delivered within 90 minutes of the published delivery commitment time for the selected service and destination.
  • The shipment was rerouted from the delivery address to a Hold at FedEx Location address.
  • The shipment was undeliverable or returned.
  • The shipment contained dangerous goods or dry ice.
  • The shipment was delayed due to an incorrect address or ZIP code or the unavailability or refusal of an appropriate or eligible person to accept delivery or sign for the package, including signatures obtained via FedEx Delivery Signature Options.
  • The shipment was delayed due to security or other regulatory delays, including permanent, regular, or daily security procedures at the recipient location.
