For mail and packages delivered through FedEx, the private alternative to public mailer USPS allows you to track your shipment directly on their website.

On the tracking page, you can view your shipment’s travel history, general shipment facts like package dimensions and weight, and file a claim if your package is damaged, lost, or missing contents.

FedEx offers a couple of options for tracking your mail. You can go directly to the FedEx homepage and click on the Tracking tab. If you’re a FedEx Delivery Manager member, you can receive alerts and make additional changes.

The membership’s free tier includes basic features like delivery alerts, holding a package for pickup, signing for packages online, providing delivery instructions, and requesting a vacation hold. If you want to sign up for FedEx Delivery Manager, you’ll need to give yourself time. To complete your registration and verify your address, you’ll need to enter an activation code that FedEx will mail to you in three to five business days.
