FedEx Shipment Signature Form

FedEx Release Signature Form – Leave Packages at Door without Signature

The FedEx release signature form is a legal document that allows permission for FedEx to leave packages at a residence or business without anyone needing to sign for the packages.

Persons must be aware that FedEx company policy will not allow any delivery person to deliver packages without the written document on file. Another option, if the person(s) prefer not to make the document available, would be to have someone near you (ie: a close neighbor or a neighboring business) may accept the package by signing for it on behalf of the recipient, however, the document must be submitted to FedEx indicating another address.

It is also company policy that the driver have the right to deliver at their discretion for the purpose of their personal security as well as the security of FedEx property and client’s loaded property.
