To access the Company Profile screen, click Company Profile on the Welcome screen navigation bar. Completing this screen provides general default information. The contact information can be used if it is necessary for FedEx to contact you regarding your FedEx Return Manager account.

Three of these default fields consist of static information that has already been entered:

  • Company ID - The Company ID for new registrations will be auto generated during the registration process and is used by FedEx for internal purposes only.
  • Company Name - The Merchant’s company name displayed on this screen cannot be modified. This is the company name entered during registration.

Required Data Fields
