Bust myths about shipping tools
When it comes to choosing the right tools for shipping, there may be a lot of questions. Well, FedEx has the answers. Check out some of the most common shipping myths and see how you can make efficiency and reliability a reality for your business.
If I fill out a Bill of Lading with my own system, I know it’s correct.
Actually, accuracy is exactly why more freight shippers are using FedEx Ship Manager®. Start sending the same shipments to the same customers without having to write up a new Bill of Lading by creating a Shipment Profile.
My current system isn’t equipped to ship freight.
Even if you don’t ship freight regularly, you can ship it using the same shipping tools you already use to ship with FedEx Ground and FedEx Express — same address book, same tracking, same reliability and efficiency you expect from FedEx.
Picking up the phone is a better way to schedule and confirm my pickup.
Actually, FedEx Ship Manager® gives you instant confirmation. The next time you schedule a pickup, get your tracking number in just a couple of clicks with FedEx shipping tools. You can also try setting preferences, creating profiles and keeping an address book.
I don’t have the time or the resources to fully integrate my system.
With hands-on assistance from our Customer Integration Consultant (CIC) Team and the wealth of online resources, you have the support and confidence you need to integrate your process with minimal downtime.
My special shipments are too valuable for shipping tools.
Add another level of care to your extra special shipments with the same shipping tools you already use. Shipping tools provide the additional control and accuracy your most valuable or complicated shipments deserve.
It’s hard to find new efficiencies in my process.
If you’re only using shipping tools for some of your shipments, you’re missing out on all FedEx Ship Manager® has to offer. From bundled shipments to bundled efficiency, now you have more ways than ever to be more productive and more profitable.
There’s no way to see if my shipment was processed.
Actually, FedEx Ship Manager® gives you complete visibility and the ability to see every step of your process in real time. It starts with a tracking code the moment you submit a Bill of Lading online.
I can’t measure my efficiency.
To be a highly effective shipper, you need to be highly efficient — and highly informed. That’s why we’ve developed 14 reports that you can customize to get in-depth insights into your shipping activity.
It’s easier to ship freight using my own system.
If you have a website or internal system, fedex.com® Integration Manager lets you customize solutions based on your needs, or IT complexities. It also works seamlessly with online marketplaces like eBay, Amazon and Etsy.
Shipping tools won’t work with my accounting system.
Actually, FedEx Ship Manager® installs easily and works great with systems like QuickBooks. Or, if you want to use your own IT people but don’t want to host our software, there’s FedEx Web Services.
