Creating a great customer experience is vital to the success of your business. Companies that prioritize the customer experience can generate 60% higher profits than their competitors.1 Here, you’ll find 3 simple ways we can help you provide a better experience for your customers and make the most of their business:

1. Make tracking orders easy

Everyone’s had this experience: you’re in a rush to get your order, and you want to make sure you get it as soon as possible. If the tracking is simple, you can adjust your plans and enjoy your order as soon as possible.

Our advanced tracking options help ensure your customers are happy with their experience, even after checkout. And, it helps you cut down on your own customer service time. By shipping with FedEx, you’re able to offer your customers multiple convenient ways to keep an eye on their package:

  • Online — By going to fedex.com/apps/fedextrack on any device, your customers can choose how they’d like to look up their shipment, enter their numbers for up to 30 shipments and instantly see the status
  • SMS — Your customers can choose to receive SMS message tracking updates on their mobile device just by sending a text. From there, they can choose to receive either one notification or on-going notifications throughout the entire delivery process. For step-by-step instructions, direct your customers to mobilesolutions.fedex.com/sms-tracking.
  • Email — With just one request, your customers can track up to 30 shipments at a time by sending an email to track@fedex.com with their tracking, order or reference number in the body of the email. After that, they’ll receive automatic, up-to-the-minute updates. For step-by-step instructions, direct your customers to fedex.com/us/tracking/email.html.

3. Get packages out quicker with convenient pickups
