By selecting a tracking number- when you are responsible for the duties and taxes, a ‘Clearance Detail’ link will display on the tracking details screen. This detail is visible after FedEx Trade Networks files the entry, which could be 48 hours or more after pickup.

Note: Must have Adobe Acrobat Reader v. 5.0 or newer for visibility

You can view this letter online, print it out, email it or fax it.

Here are some helpful tips: Detailed Signature Proof of Delivery can be found in the details section of the tracking detail page. You can use signature proof of delivery to get a picture of the recipient's signature (if the signature is available) once the shipment has been delivered.

Signature proof of delivery data availability: The information is available for up to 18 months for FedEx Express and FedEx Ground shipments and 2 years for FedEx Freight shipments. This includes the signature image and associated shipment information. The signature image and additional recipient information may not be available for display in all countries. This will be indicated on the signature proof of delivery where applicable.

You must provide a 9-digit FedEx account number associated with the shipment for visibility if you are not the shipper or payer of that shipment.

Track Associated Shipments
