The delivery time for FedEx depends on the shipping option chosen by the customer. If a customer chooses FedEx First Overnight shipping, for instance, the package will be delivered by 8:30 a.m. the next day. The "Delivery Options" page on FedEx.com lists the delivery times for all shipping options.
FedEx offers air and ground shipping. Ground shipping is the least expensive and can take up to five business days for the package to reach its destination. If the shipper chooses air shipping, the recipient can usually expect their package by the next day. The shipper will likely choose the standard shipping time that is the least expensive, or they will pay more if the package needs to reach its destination at a quicker rate.
