For Canadians this “gives you a U.S. address to ship to. Have your parcels sent to our secure facility… Once your parcel arrives, we will email you notification then you can come to Oroville and pick it up. We are fast, friendly and will help you with your shipment,” said Whiteaker, who adds that his company’s location is easy to find and there is lots of parking.

Look for the big FedEx Authorized Ship Center flag on the east side of the highway.
