FedEx InSight is a free management tool on fedex.com that lets you monitor the real-time status of your shipments and automatically alerts you and others of critical events that affect your shipments.

  • You’ll receive current status information if a shipment is delayed, which enables you to avoid customer complaints and expedite timely problem resolution.
  • You can more efficiently plan manufacturing or distribution resources with proactive delay notifications, thereby decreasing costs.

To register for FedEx InSight, you’ll need:

  • A FedEx account number. If you’re not currently an account holder, you can open an account now.
  • Your fedex.com ID. If you do not have a fedex.com ID, you will be able to obtain one when you register.

Once you have a FedEx account number and fedex.com ID, all you need to do is complete the simple, single-page online registration form. You will need to have the following information available:

  • Account's contact name: the person at your company who is the primary shipping contact.
  • Complete company address associated with the FedEx account number.

FedEx considers the security of your shipment information a top priority; therefore, registration is required for visibility to shipment information. After you register, you can get real-time status of your shipments inbound, outbound and third party without tracking numbers or reference numbers. You can receive proactive notifications about critical shipping events and possible actions to expedite the delivery. You will be able to sort or download your shipment information as well as invite others to the same visibility that you have.

The Shipment Detail screen also provides information about associated shipments within your multiple-piece shipment, additional shipment details such as shipment contents and tracking details all on one page.

Shipments are displayed according to your matching criteria (e.g., account number match). Shipments that do not include the matching criteria you selected will not appear in FedEx InSight. Shipments are displayed according to how you have requested them on the “My Options” and “Shipments” link for Inbound, Outbound or Third Party view, or all three.
