FedEx Delivery Area Surcharge ZIP Codes

By Last updated on: September 30, 2020

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 will apply 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 difficult to access.

Here at Refund Retriever, we know accessorial fees are a huge part of your invoice. Therefore, we decided to take the FedEx list of delivery area surcharge and extended delivery area surcharge zip codes and create a map. So the orange areas are those with the normal FedEx delivery area surcharges and the purple area is FedEx extended area surcharge locations.

Want to lower your surcharges?

Some companies can see the charges on more than half of all shipments. So then how can you lower the impact? For the most part, the fastest way is to have FedEx lower the amount they are charging for these fees. During your next contract negotiation, request a 25 to 50% reduction in FedEx DAS charges.  

71 lbs is still a problem! 

What if your FedEx Ground package exceed 70 lbs? Packages that are 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. As a rule, remember, FedEx Home Delivery packages cannot exceed 70 lbs.
