Track your shipment 24/7

FedEx tracking provides greater insight into when your package will be delivered. There are three ways to track your shipment:

FedEx Tracking is a free online tool that lets you check the status of your shipment quickly and easily in just one click, without logging in. Simply go to fedex.com and enter your tracking number or reference number on the homepage on any device. You can create a homepage watch list of up to 30 shipments and see real-time delivery updates, view the location of all your shipments, get proof of delivery or get exception notices all from one simple interface.

FedEx Advanced Tracking provides an in-depth status of all your shipments with customized features. You can select how you search, filter, report, view and organize your shipments. With FedEx Advanced Tracking you can:
• Save your view preferences to search more quickly later online.
• Choose to see with calendar or list view, depending on your needs.
• Improve the way you operate with customized shipping reports. Plus, choose when and how you receive your reports from daily, weekly and monthly and CSV or XML formats.
• Set up alerts for particular events and control the amount of information you receive. Plus, set specific status alerts for multiple shipments with batch notifications.

STEP 7

Pay your FedEx Express invoice

FedEx Express will send you an invoice for your transportation charges and it will need to be paid by the due date printed on the invoice. Any duty and tax charges that you need to pay will be invoiced immediately, and duty and tax invoices are payable according to the credit terms.

You will also have access to FedEx® Billing Online, a web-based tool allowing you to view and track invoices and download invoice data at the touch of a button. Invoices are typically available online within 24 hours after being issued.
