Inbound Tracking
In addition to a variety of tracking options, you’ll receive FedEx ShipAlert® notifications for pickups, deliveries and exceptions.

Standard Rates
Packages are rated with both discount and standard rates from a single-rate request to help you predict shipping costs.

Flexibility
You can customize and integrate the user interface with your existing business systems. You also get convenient delivery of FedEx Express® and FedEx Ground® shipments to more than 1,900 FedEx Office locations via our service.

Scalable Technology
Adapt and expand to fit your customers’ changing needs. A single installation of FedEx Ship Manager Server can support a large number of shipping origins, accounts and meters, regardless of location.

A Customizable Interface
FedEx Ship Manager Server is a transaction-based application that does not have a predetermined graphical user interface (GUI). That means you can develop an interface that meets your specific needs and preferences.

Thorough Documentation
You can access detailed user documentation with full descriptions on all key features and transactions, and develop greater awareness of customers’ shipping activity through daily shipping reports.

Self-Contained Shipping
All shipping functionality is contained within the FedEx Ship Manager Server application, preventing the need for constant communications with FedEx systems to perform vital shipping functions. You get greater application speed and fewer security risks from point-to-point electronic communications.

Global Availability
Ship to and from any FedEx served origin and destination. You also have fast, global return service to help streamline your international shipping operations.
