What are the hours and when should I call?

FedEx operates the call center for this 800-463-3339 phone number 24 hours, 7 days. The short answer is that you should call on a Friday. This observation and the following section are based on analysis of a sample set of 4,138 calls made in the last 90 days using our free, web-based phone (see above).

Automatically call when they open

When you use our free AI-powered phone to call and talk, wait on hold, or navigate for you, it will automatically wait until the FedEx call center opens before trying to call. It will ask your permission before it places the call, so you can also further delay that scheduled call until you are ready. But that means you can "set it and forget it" ahead of time.
An important note: busy times vs hold times vs best time to call
When we refer to busy or less busy times, we are talking about the volume of calls. The busiest times are when the most people are calling this FedEx phone number (least busy times have fewer people calling). This high call volume does not necessarily mean that you will have a long hold time when you call. Companies like FedEx staff their call centers differently based on the time of day and day of the week, so you may experience a shorter wait on hold at the busiest of times. When we refer to the best time to call, we are referring to the optimal combination of lower call volume and shorter wait times.

The least busy time to call

The least busy day to call FedEx is Sunday. The most busy day to call is Monday, which averages 221% more phone calls by comparison. Again, this is based on a sample of 4,138 calls made with our AI-powered, web-based phone in the last 90 days.

The shortest wait on hold

We measured the shortest hold times to be on Friday. The longest wait in the queue on average occurs on Wednesday, which is 892% longer than the minimum. As you can see, there is more fluctuation in hold time over the course of the week than there is in call volume.
But if you use our free call and talk for me or wait on hold for me service, you don't really need to worry about average wait times.

The best time to call FedEx

In summation, the best day to call FedEx is Friday. It isn't the least busy day, but the fact that hold times are shortest combined with it being on the busy side tells us that FedEx staffs up on Friday to handle the higher call volume, and that makes it the best time to call.

Calling this FedEx Customer Number

Adam Goldkamp is the editor / author responsible for this content.

FedEx's 800-463-3339 phone number is designed to help customers with packages, although it can be used to get information. In order to get help from an actual person, you'll need to have a package to track. Otherwise, you'll be getting help from the automated system.

That's not a bad thing, given that the automated system is somewhat helpful. When I dialed, I was asked for the reason for my call, and I said that I wanted to know the shipping rates for a package.

The system told me that it could send me a link to FedEx's website with the information needed to answer my question. I said that was fine, and the system then asked me if it was my first time contacting FedEx for assistance. I said that it was, and the system said that in that case, I would need to confirm that I was willing to receive data from FedEx before it would send me a text.

I got the first message from FedEx asking me to approve communication from its virtual assistant, and I sent back "Yes" to confirm that I could receive messages. Following that, I received a follow-up message containing a link to FedEx's shipping rates on its website.

The site told me that I could choose from any of 12 box shapes and sizes if I wanted flat-rate shipping, or I could choose to have my shipping costs calculated based on the size of the package and the distance it was traveling. If I wanted to pay for custom sizing and distance, I could use a shipping calculator to see which was the better deal.

At that point, the system said I could go back to the main menu if I had another question, or I could choose to hang up if I'd received all the help I needed. I opted to end the call at that point.

Overall, I thought this was a strong experience. Having the automated system handle the questions that the website couldn't answer and having the ability to speak to someone if more specific help was needed helps make the process easier for all callers. If a caller doesn't have easy access to the internet, they can get a text with the information they need, or they can wait on the phone for a live person to help. This system ensures nobody gets left out and everyone can get assistance.

Based on the experience I had, I would absolutely use this number if I needed customer service.

More FedEx Customer Service Contacts

There are of course other ways to contact FedEx customer service besides the phone. Below we list the best ones, by medium.

FedEx Customer Service Live Chat

fedex.com - Technical Support
Click the link for online chat
If phone-based customer service is not available, or the wait times are long, many people prefer chat as a next-best option. Some even prefer it to calling on the phone. Luckily, FedEx provides this option.

FedEx Customer Service on X (formerly Twitter)

@FedexHelp - Customer Service
One of FedEx's Customer Service Reps. Can help track packages and other useful information
FedEx, like many companies, provides customer service on the X platform (formerly Twitter). While it rarely entails live dialogue with a customer service rep, this channel can yield rapid response times and can be a useful option if you have an X/Twitter account.

FedEx Customer Service on Facebook / Messenger

Some customer service teams, like that of FedEx, accept inquiries through Facebook Messenger. This is a good option if you have a Facebook account, and you may even be able to converse live with an agent this way.

FedEx Customer Help Desk / Web Support

fedex.com - Customer Service
Online customer service support
As a last, sometimes only, resort- FedEx customer service can be accessed through their website. This can entail digging through help articles before finding a form and "being allowed" to submit a problem to their team, and rarely leads to a real-time conversation, which is why GetHuman does not recommend this unless it's the only way.
