The FedEx SmartPost option is best suited for the delivery of low-weight, less time-sensitive business-to-consumer packages, using the U.S. Postal Service for final delivery to residences. Through its network of 25 distribution hubs FedEx SmartPost provides delivery Monday through Saturday to all residential addresses in the U.S., including P.O. Boxes and APO/FPO military destinations.

Ordoro customers can use the FedEx SmartPost option to check rates and create shipping labels. To have the ability to send packages with the FedEx SmartPost option:
