FedEx offers many great features to its customers. One such service is FedEx Ground Pickup. In the simplest of terms, it is a service that allows you to schedule a specific time and location for FedEx to pick up your shipment to be delivered. In addition, you can schedule a precise location and time to have FedEx Ground deliver your packages or mail.
