4 Mobile Solutions to Help Simplify Shipping

Using mobile device to manage shipping

As a small-business owner, shipping is just one of the many things on your busy to-do list. We get it. That’s why mobile solutions from FedEx help streamline the shipping process, saving you time and letting you get more done on the go.

Solution #1: Manage shipments with the FedEx® app.

Update customers on the status of their package while you're out running errands for the office using the tracking feature in the FedEx app. You can get up-to-date details about when your shipments are in transit or delivered, or if there are exceptions.

With the FedEx mobile app for iPhone®, you can also:

  • Request Hold at FedEx Location
  • Sign for a package
  • Request a vacation hold
  • Customize delivery instructions


Solution #2: Schedule a pickup with your mobile device.  

Need to ship a package, but can’t get away from the office? Let us come to you. Easily schedule a pickup from your mobile device by going to fedex.com, and a courier will drop by at your requested time to pick up your FedEx Express®, FedEx Ground®, or FedEx Freight® shipments. In addition to scheduling a pickup, you can:

  • Customize deliveries to your home
  • Create a shipment
  • Get rates & transit times
  • Track a shipment
  • Find a location

Solution #3: Ship on your schedule using the Mobile Shipping Label.

If you need to ship a package and aren’t near a printer, simply use a Mobile Shipping Label. Start by creating a shipment and selecting the Mobile Shipping Label option. You’ll receive an email with a mobile barcode that you can take to any FedEx Office or FedEx World Service Center location at your convenience. We’ll scan the barcode and ship your package for you.
