FedEx SmartPost Heads to Canada

Considering selling to the Canadian market? FedEx SmartPost announced last week that it has expanded its service into Canada for U.S. shippers via the residential delivery capabilities of Canada Post Corp.

FedEx SmartPost, a wholly owned subsidiary of FedEx Ground, specializes in delivering lightweight, business-to-consumer packages (typically less time-sensitive parcels), using the U.S. Postal Service for the final mile to residences. FedEx SmartPost International has a similar relationship for delivery with Canada Post.

SmartPost International service uses a cross-border system through integration with Canada Post’s Borderfree services. This integration provides shippers with transborder features such as broker-inclusive service, paperless electronic customs clearance and intra-Canadian returns service with duty and tax refunds.

The service is available to all residential addresses—including P.O. boxes—in Canada. FedEx SmartPost International also includes around-the-clock shipment tracking status updates via Fedex.com.
