My FedEx tracking link says 'pending', what does that mean?

When a delivery status changes to “pending” on a package that has shipped usually indicates a package has been delayed beyond the originally estimated delivery date. This is not uncommon or cause for alarm given the service delays that arise during the busy holiday season. Many FedEx stations are sorting shipments at a slower rate than usual because of staff shortages and an influx of packages.

The status on your tracking page should update to reflect a new estimated delivery date once it is available, but if the tracking remains in the “pending” status for more than 3 business days, feel free to contact FedEx directly at 1-800-463-3339, or reach out to us at 877-842-2586 or
