FedEx Office, a provider of printing, packing and shipping services, has extended its local courier delivery service FedEx SameDay City to Portland, Oregon, the first market coverage in the state.

FedEx SameDay City offers residential and business delivery within hours with real-time notifications, by uniformed FedEx drivers, in branded vehicles. The service is currently available in 30 other markets and more than 1,800 cities across the USA. Industries including health care, life sciences, manufacturing, finance, perishables, travel and automotive increasingly rely on same-day services.

With FedEx SameDay City, customers in Portland can choose the speed and cost to best fit their needs. Delivery services include:
• Priority service – available seven days a week, with pickup and delivery in as little as two hours;
• Standard service – pickup and delivery in four hours from origin to destination, Monday through Friday;
• Economy service – also offered Monday through Friday, with delivery by end of the day; and
• Route service – a custom, same-day service for regular pickup and deliveries at multiple locations.

Brian Phillips, CEO of FedEx Office, said, “Whether it’s time-sensitive medication, auto parts or important documents, customers can expect convenience, reliability and speed when they choose FedEx SameDay City. Our Portland launch broadens our service offerings to provide customers flexibility to send and receive packages at their convenience, all within one day.”

Additionally, customers using the FedEx SameDay City app can view the location of their packages on a delivery map and receive estimated arrival time notifications.
