How to Report Stolen FedEx Packages

You may have had a FedEx package stolen from your front steps or outside your apartment door if you live in an urban or suburban area. Although you can and should contact FedEx to inquire about the delivery location, FedEx will be unable to rectify your situation. You must contact the shipper and report the package as stolen in order for the shipper to file an insurance claim via FedEx and to mail a replacement package. Depending on your shipper, you may have call multiple times before the shipper resolves the situation.
