What is FedEx SmartPost?

With SmartPost, FedEx carries packages through its network of warehouse and truck beds. But instead of dropping packages on customers’ porches, FedEx merely drops them at the local post office. USPS carries SmartPost parcels for the final leg of their journey, known as the “last mile.”

With SmartPost, FedEx delivers parcels to the post office nearest their final destination. Then, usually the next day, USPS delivers them to customers.

With FedEx’s SmartPost the package is taken to the closest USPS regional hub – that makes the UPS SurePost delivery slightly faster than FedEx’s SmartPost.

FedEx SmartPost has a 98% on-time delivery for packages that arrive at the proper hubs, where they are handed off to the USPS or other appropriate final delivery services.

Each day USPS will get a pallet from FedEx, shrink wrapped with one large barcode. This barcode transfers all the information to USPS system.

The resulting service is less expensive than FedEx Ground but generally takes two to four days longer. It includes tracking information but doesn't have a guarantee of service

FedEx SmartPost Tracking USPS

FedEx does not supply USPS with their end of the tracking and so usually you know nothing about the package until it is handed off to your delivering Post Office.

But with ParcelsApp.com tracking service you can track FedEx SmartPost package end-to-end, including both legs of the journey, when package travels with FedEx and then with USPS.

Enter your FedEx SmartPost tracking number into tracking field above to get USPS tracking number and find complete journey of your package.

How do I track a FedEx SmartPost from USPS?

FedEx SmartPost tracking numbers usually look like 9261299991099834284833 or 9274899991099835941441, i.e. start with "92612" or "92748". So original FedEx tracking number will be starting with 612/748, and all you have to do to get USPS tracking number is prefix FedEx number with 92.

How long does FedEx SmartPost take?

You should plan for two to five days more than standard FedEx Ground shipping, which in some cases could double transit times. (It’s worth noting that this is a longer delay than from UPS SurePost, a similar hybrid service from FedEx’s primary competitor.)

Does FedEx deliver with USPS

SmartPost typically utilizes USPS service for the last leg of deliveries — but not always. In some cases, when FedEx is already near a package’s destination and the delivery would be easy and efficient, FedEx drivers deliver parcels themselves. But the majority of SmartPost packages move through USPS trucks.

FedEx SmartPost vs. Ground & Home Delivery

– FedEx Ground is a service that averages roughly 2.5 days of transit time within the U.S., and is applicable when shipping to commercial locations.

– FedEx Home Delivery is a service that averages roughly 2.5 days of transit time within the U.S., and is applicable when shipping to residences.

– FedEx SmartPost is a service that averages roughly 4 days of transit time within the U.S., and can be used to ship to both commercial locations and residences.

So, how fast is FedEx SmartPost? Based on our experience, it takes, on average, about 1.5 days longer for SmartPost packages to arrive compared to Ground and Home Delivery.

Tracking FAQ

My package was supposed to be here, but it has not arrived. What can I do?

If the tracking results do not answer your question, your next step can be to contact FedEx for further assistance.

I tracked my shipment, and there haven't been updates on it in more than a day. What should I do?

Shipments in the FedEx system receive updates at various points between pickup and delivery. It is not unusual for a shipment to go more than 24 hours without an update while in transit.

I tracked my shipment, and it appears there is a customs or clearance delay. What should I do?

Customs and clearance delays occur for a variety of reasons.Clearance delay information is available from the detailed tracking page, in general this would include the reason for the delay and recommended action. If additional information is required from the shipper or recipient, FedEx will attempt to contact them.

I tracked my shipment, and there are no scans. What should I do?

If there are no scans for the tracking number entered, contact your shipper to verify the tracking number is correct. If you are the shipper, and it has been more than 24 hours since you dropped off the shipment or had the shipment picked up, please call FedEx Customer Service.

When I first tracked the shipment, it had an estimated delivery date, and now there isn't one. What does this mean?

FedEx is able to provide the estimated delivery date information for many of our shipments. But when the shipment encounters a delay or an exception in handling, FedEx may not be able to accurately state when we expect the shipment to be delivered. Also if the package had not been delivered by the commitment date/time, then that info would be removed from the display.
