FedExShip Component

Properties   Methods   Events   Configuration Settings   Errors  

Allows you to generate a FedEx shipping label for any of FedEx domestic services complete with addresses and barcode, cancel a shipment or close out the FedEx Ground shipments.




Generating a shipping label can be done by calling either the GetPackageLabel or GetShipmentLabels method. You will have to specify the package information, FedEx service to be used for shipping this package, origin and destination information, and any other special services associated with the shipment (such as Saturday Pickup, Saturday Delivery, Hold At Locations, etc.).

This component also allows you to delete packages included in the daily shipping log that have not already been tendered to FedEx by calling the CancelShipment method. The TrackingNumber parameter that identifies the shipment must be specified in the request along with the DeveloperKey, Password, AccountNumber, and MeterNumber.

When shipping with FedEx Ground, you can close out your shipments and generate a FedEx Ground Close Manifest by calling CloseGroundShipments method.

To use this component, you must have a FedEx AccountNumber. You should also have already obtained a DeveloperKey, Password and a MeterNumber uniquely assigned to your account by FedEx after registration for Web Services.

NOTE: FedEx requires that all applications that print shipping labels pass a series of certification tests prior to being placed in production. The full version of FedEx Integrator gives you access to a certification package that makes this process very easy. The certification package is available by request. It includes all test scenarios required by FedEx for FedEx Express and Ground (international and domestic), and Home Delivery. Through the application included in the certification package, you can generate all shipping labels for selected scenarios applicable to your shipping needs with a click of a button.

Please note that our components support the non-SOAP version of FedEx Web Services. You might have to specify this detail while submitting the certification package. Upon successful certification, FedEx will provide you with new credentials and URL to be used in the production environment (while the credentials work for both SOAP and non-SOAP FedEx Web Services, the URL is SOAP/non-SOAP specific).
