Pending Shipments

A Pending Shipment is a shipment record saved to be processed later. This allows you to enter your shipment information ahead of time and print the labels when your packages are ready to be shipped.
  • Pending Shipments expire 10 days after creating the shipment, or the future date you selected when creating the shipment.
  • Pending Shipments cannot be saved for FedEx Express Freight shipments, return shipments, or shipments that have been scheduled for pickup.
  • You will not be billed for Pending Shipments if you do not process the shipment and print the label.
  • You can save up to 100 shipments, and you can ship up to 10 shipments at a time.
  • You can process and print Pending Shipment labels at any time.
    • If you select a Pending Shipment with a past date or today’s date, the label prints today’s date.
    • If you select a Pending Shipment with a future date, the label prints the future date.
  • To display a reminder that you have Pending Shipments each time you login or logout to FedEx Ship Manager, select Remind Me to Print Pending Shipments in the Complete your Shipment section on the Preferences screen.
