Using a Group allows you to save time when you send the same type of package to a number of recipients.
- You can create Groups of up to 10 recipients.
- In order to ensure that all shipments comply with destination requirements, all members in a Group must be in the same country.
- Destination requirements include weight and declared value limitations as well as international documentation requirements.
- If you have imported addresses from another application, you may have imported recipients with incomplete information.
- These recipients do not appear in your Address Book list on the Create New Group screen.
- To make these recipients eligible for Group membership, you must complete all required information for these recipients in your Address Book.
- If you do not get a label for one of your Group members, the Group member does not qualify for a service or special service selected.
- You will receive an error message advising you of the reason that this label could not be created.
- This screen can be printed and used as a reference for creating another shipping label for this recipient.
- It is important to verify that the number of labels printed matches the number of shipments you plan to send.
- Additionally, please make sure that the appropriate label is attached to each package.
- Group shipping is not available for FedEx® Express Freight Services shipments.
