Courier company FedEx will begin taking photographs of packages on doorsteps across North America to provide proof of delivery.
The move makes the company the first nationwide carrier to do so in the United States and Canada.
Announcing in a Wednesday press release, FedEx said the new protocol is part of its efforts to boost its e-commerce services and give customers peace of mind.
“This is something e-commerce merchants and customers have been asking for, and we are proud to be the first to announce this service will be available to residential customers,” said chief customer officer Brie Carere.
“Receiving visual confirmation that the package has arrived gives peace of mind to both merchants and consumers, and we are thrilled to give them that confidence,” Carere added.
Under the new program, customers of express and ground residential deliveries will receive a photo showing the exact location of their package once it has been placed on their doorstep.
The proof of delivery photo service does not require an account, meaning that customers with and without a FedEx login will be able to access it.
Customers with a FedEx account will be able to view the image through the FedEx Delivery Manager, the company’s free portal.Those without an account will be able to view their images through FedEx’s tracking tool by entering their tracking number.FedEx said the new service will initially be available to users in “select markets” before being rolled out to customers in the United States and Canada in time for the busy holiday shipping season.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
