So, you’re waiting for a FedEx package to arrive. But when you track the package, the status says “Delivery Exception.” What does that even mean? Will you still get your package? A FedEx delivery exception is a common occurrence, and all it means is that your package will arrive a bit later than expected due to unexpected or unavoidable circumstances. Read on to learn the most common causes and who you can contact for help.

  • A FedEx shipment or delivery exception is when a package is delayed due to unforeseen conditions.
  • A package is typically delayed due to bad weather, customs delays, holiday closures, or a missed delivery.
  • If your package has a delivery exception, it will most likely still be delivered (if only just a bit late).
