Stay Connected With Your College Student While On the Go

If your college student or grad-to-be attends school miles away from home, it's challenging to keep in touch. It's even more difficult when you lead a busy, on-the-go life. Our expansive offerings of FedEx mobile solutions enable you to reach out to your student with convenience and ease, no matter the distance.

Virtual mobility
With our strong web presence in 206 countries and in 25 languages, we can help you get those packages to your student when they're needed, whether to Boston or Bali. Our convenient and easy-to-use FedEx mobile solutions are available through your iPad® and iPhone®, Android, and BlackBerry® mobile device. With these innovative solutions, you can:

  • Ship packages.
  • Find FedEx locations.
  • Get rates and transit times.
  • Schedule a pickup.
  • Track shipment status.
  • Manage your shipments.

Everyone likes getting pampered. Indulge your college student during finals week. Send a care package of goodies for munching on while burning the midnight oil. Grandma can't make it to the graduation ceremony? Help her send the perfect gift for her special grad. And after donning the cap and gown, your world traveler will appreciate the supplies you send for the summer jaunt before returning home.

Ways to ship
Rushing home from work with only minutes to spare, but have a care package in your back seat? Save time by creating a shipping label at the office and emailing it to your mobile device.  Here’s how:

  • Log in to fedex.com from your computer and click “Create a Shipment.”
  • Enter your shipping information.
  • Choose the “Send a Mobile Shipping Label” option.
  • Enter your email address.
  • Click “Ship,” and a mobile barcode will be emailed to your mobile device.

Then, bring the package to any FedEx Office or FedEx World Service Center® location. A team member will scan the barcode directly from your email on your mobile device, print the label, and ship your package for you. Learn more

Manage shipments in a click
If your package is ready to go but you don't have time to bring it to us, we'll come to you. Access fedex.com from your computer or any mobile device to schedule a U.S. or international pickup. Just log in to fedex.com with your user ID and password, and enter your address and shipment information. You can also get accurate and reliable rate quotes and estimated delivery times while you're on the road.

Once your package is grad- or college-student-bound, keep your eye on it using fedex.com from your mobile device. Find out when shipments are in transit or delivered, and get an email notification once it's arrived.

There's an app for that
You can also track the status of your shipment using the FedEx® Mobile app. You don't even need to log in; simply enter your FedEx tracking number. This app is available for Android smartphone, iPhone or iPad, and BlackBerry smartphones.
