About FedEx Pak

When your package is placed in FedEx Pak (530mm x 450mm × 64mm), you will receive the same services at a lower cost (delivery days and additional services) as when you use FedEx Priority.

  • In some cases, FedEx Priority may be cheaper than FedEx Pak, but we will automatically show the cheapest shipping method in Pak or Priority.
  • CDJapan will place the packed packages in FedEx Pak as much as possible to reduce the shipping costs.
  • When using FedEx Pak, products are placed in a standard solid shipping box with cushioning material first and then wrapped in FedEx Pak, so there is no need to worry about damage caused by the use of FedEx Pak.
