Fed ex from Lisbon to the USA

Anyone sent docs back to the US via Fed Ex recently?  Did they arrive and arrive timely? Just wondering if Fed Ex works or if we should DHL instead? Thanks.

We have done the reverse. I would imagine the cost would be the same? It depends on the weight and where in the USA. We have a 33% success rate of getting FedEx deliveries here in Lisbon on time. They eventually get delivered. 

We are having my Mother just send a test envelope using the USPS international stamp. I suspect it will get delivered faster here in Lisbon than FedEx.

The issue here is local delivery in Portugal. I don't think there are any issues going to the US.

@jonesdn2020  - thanks! We used DHL to send docs to Ei! from the US but now need to send docs back to the Title Company in the US and they use Fed Ex.  (will be interesting to see how your Mail experiment turn out.)

@konni Did you have any issues with DHL delivering here. When we send through FedEx most of the time it goes from out for delivery to delayed.

@jonesdn2020 No issues.  Ei! received it within a couple of days.  We were told to use DHL to send docs to Portugal and not to use Fed Ex. So that's why I'm wondering if anyone using Fed Ex to send outside Portugal has had any issues.

@konni My mother sent a letter yesterday and put 2 dollars of stamps on it. I guess she did not want to go to the USPS office and get an international stamp for a dollar forty.

She normally does that when sending letters to our relatives in Ireland and Scotland. 

She says she averages 1 week sending to relatives there.

She is in Arizona.

To follow up on my Fed Ex question: last week we sent our documents out via Fed Ex in Porto. We took the Metro line toward the airport and got off at the second to last stop (Botica) and the Fed Ex office was a short walk away. We sent the package on a Wednesday afternoon and it arrived in northern California on Friday afternoon.
