FedEx Announces Mother’s Day Domestic Shipping Deadlines

Sydney, Australia, April 30th, 2024 – FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and one of the world’s largest express transportation companies, has announced domestic shipping deadlines for Mother’s Day 2024.

For sending shipments within Australia, the deadline for Road Express is 8th May (for Western Australia and the Northern Territory, the last day for shipping is 6th May); and for Priority services (9:00 Express, 10:00 Express, 12:00 Express and Overnight Express services) the deadline is 9th May.

The announcement comes as Australians gear up for the busy love-filled shopping season. Businesses are anticipating robust sales, with Mother’s Day being a significant milestone in the second quarter of the year. Despite economic challenges, Aussies are predicted to splash out $995 million on Mother’s Day in 2024, up 7.5 percent from 20231. Businesses expect a similar trend this year, too.

“We are constantly strengthening our operational capabilities, as well as enhancing our differentiated service offerings to help our customers navigate the complex supply chain landscape in Australia,” said Peter Langley, Vice President of FedEx Express Australasia. “With our extensive domestic network, we are well equipped to offer businesses of all types and sizes convenient access to their domestic and international consumers.”

In an ongoing commitment to enhance its services to meet market needs, FedEx is continuing to invest in Australia with new facilities, like the one in Morwell, regional Victoria and Adelaide, South Australia. These facilities support local businesses access domestic and international markets in a fast and efficient way. Additionally, FedEx has introduced the Picture Proof-of-Delivery (PPOD) service where customers receive a photo showing the exact location of their package as soon as it is delivered to their doorstep2, offering peace of mind for shippers on Mother’s Day.
