What is a Fedex Clearance Delay?
In particular what is a FedEx Clearance Delay in Canada. I am experiencing the clearance delay in relation to my Iphone shipment. I`m assuming I would be have the same problem with an IPad as well.
Here is a copy of what I am seeing on my FedEx Shipment Tracking Page

1. It’s Christmas – so that is probably part of the delay – Canada has two statutory holidays off for Christmas so it could just be caught in customs.
2. This is not unusual and happens quite frequently – it is not just your parcel but lots of others as well.
RELAX – you’ll have your package in a couple of days.
Thanks much for your advice – package arrived safely, no duty or tariffs, it was just as you said – a standard delay.
