FedEx Delivery Area Surcharge ZIP Codes

By Last updated on: January 18, 2024

What is a FedEx Delivery Area Surcharge?

As a FedEx shipper, there is a 99% chance that you have seen a DAS or delivery area surcharge fee on your FedEx invoice. A delivery area surcharge applies to shipments intended for select U.S. ZIP codes. DAS also applies to FedEx Express and FedEx Ground shipments destined for areas in Alaska and Hawaii that are remotely populated and challenging to reach.

71 lbs is still a problem! 

What if your FedEx Ground package exceeds 70 lbs? For packages 71 lbs or greater and shipped to an Alaska ZIP code that receives the delivery area surcharge, the applicable fee will be 3.5 times the Alaska commercial or Alaska residential charge. Remember that FedEx Home Delivery packages cannot exceed 70 lbs.

Currently, there are 3833 zip codes to which this new FedEx accessorial fee will apply.
