We’ve got lots more information to share with you about rescheduling your FedEx deliveries, so make sure you keep reading!

What Happens If I Miss My FedEx Delivery?

If you miss your FedEx delivery, the driver will leave a door tag.

That said, this door tag has a number that corresponds with your tracking number and gives instructions on where to locate your package.

Further, you can track the location of your package by:

  • Entering the door tag number into FedEx’s online tracking tool
  • Texting “follow” plus the door tag number to 48773
  • Scanning the door tag barcode via the FedEx Mobile app

In some cases, your package is brought to a FedEx facility. In others, it will be redelivered the next business day.

When a package is brought to a FedEx facility, it is held for up to seven days. With that, you must collect it before this time or it will be returned to the shipper.

Additionally, if your package is going to be redelivered, there’s not much to do except wait for the next delivery attempt.

That said, if you can stay home and wait for delivery, you’ll improve your chances of having a successful delivery.

When Does FedEx Reschedule Deliveries?

FedEx will attempt to redeliver your package the next business day following the initial delivery attempt.

In general, deliveries are made between 8:00 AM and 8:00 PM Monday through Friday to commercial addresses and every day of the week to residential addresses.

How Can I Reschedule A FedEx Delivery?

If you weren’t home when FedEx made a delivery attempt, you can schedule a new delivery time on the FedEx Delivery page.

Once on this page, select “Missed Delivery Card” from the drop-down menu and enter your tracking number, email address, and phone number.

Then, you will be able to select a new delivery time for your package. Also, keep in mind that you’ll only be able to choose a window of time, not a specific time.

Can I Reschedule A FedEx Delivery For The Same Day?

No, you cannot reschedule a FedEx delivery for the same day as the initial delivery attempt.

If customers were allowed to do so, FedEx would be unable to keep track of all the last-minute requests.

As a result, you’ll need to reschedule your delivery at least one business day after the first delivery attempt.

How Do I Check The Status Of My Rescheduled FedEx Delivery?

To check the status of your rescheduled delivery request, log in to your FedEx account, go to the tracking page and track your package.

If your reschedule request was successful, you’ll see a message saying, “This delivery has been modified.”

Also, if you don’t see this message, contact FedEx customer support at 1(800) 463-3339 for help.

How Do I Change My FedEx Delivery Time?

In addition to being able to reschedule the date of your FedEx delivery, you can also request a new delivery time.

That said, you can do this through the FedEx Delivery Manager tool. However, note that while using this tool is free, there is a fee for scheduling a delivery time.

That said, to request changes to your FedEx package delivery, head to the Delivery page or the Delivery Manager tool and make the desired changes.
