How Are FedEx Home & Ground Methods Selected?

About FedEx Home & Ground Methods

FedEx Home Delivery is a suitable choice for shipping packages up to 70 lbs. for delivery within 1 to 5 business days. Delivery on Saturdays at no extra charge. No delivery on Mondays.

FedEx Ground is typically the cheapest FedEx method with cost-effective ground shipping rates. Delivery to every address in the 48 contiguous U.S. states within 1 to 5 business days based on the distance to the destination (delivery to Alaska and Hawaii in 3 to 7 business days). FedEx Ground will charge an extra fee for delivery on weekends.

FedEx Figures It Out

While some addresses can go either way,  ShipHero recommends you choose the best-negotiated rate FedEx method on your account. Typically, for most customers, this will mean FedEx Ground. This is generally the cheapest method. 

If, when generating the shipping label for FedEx Ground and it's not available, FedEx Home will be selected instead. And vice versa.
