FedEx Express U.S. Multiple-Package Shipments

A multiple-package shipment (MPS) consists of two or more packages shipped to the same recipient.

To create a multiple-package shipment:

  • The first package in the shipment request is considered the master package. Any shipment level information (TotalWeight, PackageCount, SignatureOptions) is included on the master package. The SequenceID for this package is 1.
  • In the master package reply, the tracking number assigned to this first should be in the MasterTrackingID element for all subsequent packages. You must return the master tracking number and increment the package number (SequenceID) for subsequent packages.
Note: The maximum number of packages in an MPS request is 200.
