FedEx Electronic Chain of Custody Reporting


A technology solution providing in-depth tracking status reporting, designed for the shipment of controlled goods*.


FedEx® Electronic Chain of Custody Reporting provides specialized reporting on the details of your shipment’s journey by leveraging FedEx scanning technology to deliver detailed information about your shipment. You get a level of reporting not available from any other FedEx tracking solution.

  • End-to-end tracking status reporting. Reports include scans performed at multiple points as your shipment travels through the FedEx network – from pickup to delivery, including scan date, time and location.
  • Chain of custody identification. Each scan that is performed by a FedEx employee is linked to their Employee ID number; the employee first name and initial of their last name is displayed on the report next to each of these scans.*
  • Delivery confirmation. Each report includes a signature proof of delivery record.*
  • Reporting flexibility. You can determine the frequency of reporting or request a report for only the shipment tracking number(s) you provide.
  • Data archiving. Scan data is electronically stored for five years to facilitate future reporting or audits.
