What does FedEx delivery exception mean? A delivery exception occurs when there is a package that is temporarily delayed in transit. This means your package might be taking a little longer to get to you than originally expected. The reasons for a FedEx delivery exception can vary. According to the FedEx website, this does not necessarily mean that the package is certain to arrive late. The company claims to make every effort possible to ensure that packages reach their destinations right on time.
