FedEx will let recipients leave detailed instructions for their driver or reschedule a delivery to their home. FedEx Corp. said Tuesday it will charge $5 to reschedule the delivery day or location and $10 to request a 2-hour delivery window. Other services are free, including putting a 14-day vacation hold on deliveries or making a request such as “Please leave the package at the back door.” Raj Subramaniam, a marketing executive for the company, said FedEx Delivery Manager was inspired by the boom in online shopping.

Customers can sign up — that's free — on the FedEx website to be notified of pending deliveries by email, text or phone without a tracking number or FedEx account.
