Get started

How It Works

Get the speed and flexibility your supply chain and e-commerce systems demand, with:

Inbound tracking

In addition to a variety of tracking options, you’ll receive FedEx ShipAlert® notifications of pickups, deliveries, and exceptions.


Standard rates

Packages are rated with both discount and standard rates from a single-rate request to help you predict shipping costs.



You can customize and integrate the user interface with your existing business systems. You also get convenient delivery of FedEx Express® and FedEx Ground® shipments to more than 1,800 FedEx Office locations via our service.


Scalable technology

Adapt and expand to fit your customers’ changing needs. A single installation of FedEx Ship Manager Server can support a large number of shipping origins, accounts, and meters, regardless of location.


A customizable interface

FedEx Ship Manager Server is a transaction-based application that does not have a predetermined GUI. That means you can develop an interface that meets your specific needs and preferences.


Thorough documentation

You can access detailed user documentation with full descriptions on all key features and transactions, and develop greater awareness of customers’ shipping activity through daily shipping reports.


Self-contained shipping

All shipping functionality is contained within the FedEx Ship Manager Server application, preventing the need for constant communications with FedEx systems to perform vital shipping functions. You get greater application speed and fewer security risks from point-to-point electronic communications.


Global availability

Ship to and from any FedEx served origin and destination. You also have fast, global return service to help streamline your international shipping operations.


OpenShip print-as-you-go

Keeps a shipment ‘open,’ entering information as it is received and closing only when the shipment is finalized. Labels can be printed as you create, add and edit packages.

FedEx ShipAlert® proof of delivery (POD) email notification

Generates email delivery notifications and provides them to end customers.

Standard rates

Reconciles and provides FedEx Ground shipping rates on the day the rates are effective. Shipments can be rated with both discount and standard rates.

Auto configuration

New meters are issued when software is installed, eliminating the meter registration process.

Customized shipping information

Displays available shipping services by location.

Multiple shipments

Bundles to a single location and assigns a lower rate as available.

Activity reports

  • End-of-Day Transaction
  • Courier
