Within the continental United States, FedEx Ground delivery takes anywhere from 1 to 5 business days, while delivery to Alaska, Hawaii, Canada and Puerto Rico is completed in 1 to 7 business days. The amount of time required for delivery is the same regardless of whether the package is sent using business delivery or residential delivery.
