With Federal Express, it has never been easier to track your shipments. FedEx has set up their Web site so that you have fast and easy access to the tracking information of all of your packages that you have sent with FedEx.

With FedEx, you can track in a variety of ways-by using your tracking number (which is located on your airbill or waybill), by using your account number and reference numbers online at the FedEx Web site or by using your personal e-mail address. FedEx also offers InSight, which can track all of your packages and shipments without a reference number or tracking number. This service is available to members of FedEx.

With FedEx, you can also get e-mail updates about your shipments and packages. You can access this feature on the FedEx Web site.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • FedEx account if you do not have the tracking numbers
  • Computer with Internet access
  • E-mail account if you wish to use the track by e-mail feature
  • Your FedEx airbill number, tracking number or reference number

  • Remember to follow the proper format if you are submitting your tracking information via personal e-mail.
  • Keep your account information with FedEx private and personal. Don't share your account information with anyone.
  • Keep your tracking number or account number in a safe spot in case you need to continue tracking your package.
  • If you are the receiver, ask the sender for the tracking number on the airbill when they sent your package using FedEx.
