Close Shipment

The Close Service WSDL allows you to reconcile shipping information for your FedEx Ground® or FedEx SmartPost® shipments and print a ground manifest for your ground driver. The ground manifest is generated after a successful close and must be printed before your ground shipments are tendered to FedEx. You may continue to ship ground packages after a close has been performed. Similarly, FedEx SmartPost must be closed in order for the system to become aware of the package before it is scanned at the FedEx SmartPost facility.
