I tracked my shipment, and there haven't been scans on it in more than a day. What should I do?
Shipments in the FedEx system receive scans at various points between pickup and delivery. It is not unusual for a shipment to go more than 24 hours without a scan while in transit – your shipment may be traveling as intended.
I tracked my shipment, and there are no scans. What should I do?
If there are no scans for the tracking number entered, contact your shipper to verify the tracking number is correct. If you are the shipper, and it has been more than 24 hours since you dropped off the shipment or had the shipment picked up, please contact us at 1.866.393.4585.
When I first tracked the shipment, it had an estimated delivery date, and now there isn't one. What does this mean?
We are able to provide the estimated delivery date information for many of our shipments. When the shipment encounters a delay or an exception in handling, we may not be able to accurately state when we expect the package to be delivered.
