Rate Services

Use the RateService WSDL to request pre-ship rating information and to determine estimated or courtesy billing quotes. Time in Transit can be returned with the rates if it is specified in the request. Depending on how a Rate request is structured, the reply will return in different structures. These structures have two different names.

Rate

RateRequest provides a rate response on a single service.

Note: A rate request does not return route or service availability. All rate quotes are estimates only and may differ from the actual invoiced amount.

Rate Available Services/Rate Shopping

A Rate Available Services request will provide a list of available services from one request. Rates are returned for each service on the list.

Note: A Rate Available Services request does not return route information, but does check service availability and returns only those services that are actually available.

Rate Service Details

The Rate and Rate Available Services operations provide a shipping rate quote for a specific service combination depending on the origin and destination information supplied in the request. The following details apply:

Discount rates are available for all services and origin/destination pairs.
FedEx list rates are available for FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, FedEx Freight®, and FedEx National LTL. When list rates are requested, both account rates and list rates are returned. Note that list rates are not available for all FedEx Freight and FedEx National LTL accounts.
FedEx Freight and FedEx National LTL Shipper accounts can only request rates from origin at Shipper address. FedEx Freight and FedEx National LTL Bill To accounts can request rates from origins other than Shipper address. FedEx Freight East and FedEx Freight West accounts can only request rates from origin in respective regions.t.
The Rate operation returns the rate for the origin and destination by requested service. You will not receive service checking to validate whether that service is actually available for your ship date and origin/destination pair.
The Rate Available Services operation returns the rate for the origin and destination for the requested service. Note that only valid services are returned.
Rate and Rate Available Services for FedEx Express® shipments support intra-Mexico shipping.
This quote is an estimate and may differ from the actual invoiced amount.
Rate shopping, service-specific commitment and rate information may also be specified.

For more detailed information about the services offered by FedEx, see the electronic FedEx Service Guide.

Rate Coding Details

When requesting a rate quote:

Include as much detail as possible about your shipment. The RateService WSDL provides elements to identify your shipment, including shipping option elements. This information is important for calculating the correct shipping costs with surcharges.
Use the optional RateRequestTypes element to have list rates returned with your discount rates. If you choose LIST as the element value, you receive both discount and list rates.
For Rate (a single service), specify the service to ensure rate data for the service and shipment data input is returned. For Rate Available Services (multiple services returned), do not include the ServiceType. The system will then return a list of services.
For Rate, specify the carrier by using CarrierCode. For Rate Available Services, specify the carrier to ensure rate data for all services for the carrier and the shipment data combination are returned, or do not specify a CarrierCode to receive all available services from all carriers in the return.
Rating is available for FedEx SmartPost Shipping.
Use the optional ReturnTransitAndCommit element to include transit time information in the reply. Express information will include the day and date the package will be delivered, based on the ship date you specified.
