Yes, you can ship a Pelican case via FedEx. However, we do recommend that you take extra caution when shipping delicate items like cameras in a pelican case.
The best way to ensure that your camera arrives safely is to pack it inside of the case with bubble wrap or foam peanuts.
You may also want to consider using a cardboard box that can fit your pelican case.
But in my own experience, doing this is not necessary.
FedEx treats this kind of package like passenger luggage.
And you should make sure to secure the label to the package. You can even use FedEx’s own luggage tag to do this.
