This will help you save time and obtain an electronic proof of your shipment status, which you can forward as you wish. All of our shipping tools provide full tracking capabilities. In addition, specific tools are available to allow tracking through the internet and email.

Internet tracking – Internet Tracking allows you to query and obtain package status information via fedex.com for up to 30 shipments simultaneously. Detailed tracking results can be forwarded to up to three email addresses. Select "Track" on the FedEx homepage. You can track your packages at any time from any place in the world.

E-mail tracking – You can track the status of your shipments using the convenience of email. Just send an email to track@fedex.com from anywhere in the world to receive detailed tracking information on up to 30 Air Waybills with one request. Within minutes results are received and can be forwarded to as many parties as necessary.

FedEx Web Services – FedEx Web Services is the next generation API for integrating software applications with FedEx Systems. From a business and product planning standpoint, FedEx Web Services is an ideal choice for integration. Essentially, they are a collection of programming technologies that allows users to build customized solutions for application integration.

FedEx InSight® – FedEx InSight® is a new online shipment visibility application. Using your company's account number(s), InSight provides actionable status information about your shipments.
