FedEx is a widely used shipping and LTL freight carrier for businesses, but it’s no secret that managing shipments can sometimes be frustrating. The FedEx system tracks millions of packages daily, and with everyone else trying to access the FedEx system — particularly during busy periods — it’s not uncommon to experience downtime.
Address fields may be slow to load, FedEx Ship Manager may be unable to retrieve your order status, or the entire platform may be down altogether. All of these issues take time away from managing orders. While it might appear to be a few minutes here and there, those minutes add up to costly delays that can greatly disrupt your workflow.
At CloudLogix, we understand the importance of avoiding downtime and accessing the information and services you need, when you need them. We help our clients continuously access the FedEx system and overcome outages through our direct connection to their system.
This FedEx Freight API helps supply chain logistics companies bypass heavy traffic, access services without disruption and delay, and manage their freight shipments in a seamless and efficient manner.
How the FedEx Freight API Works
The FedEx system is designed to handle heavy traffic volumes, but you can’t always count on being able to access its services when needed. While FedEx may attempt to minimize outages, they can still occur — and that’s where our dedicated API connection comes in.
Our API allows customers to connect directly to FedEx Ship Manager without having to compete with general-use traffic. It’s like the express lane on the highway; you’re still moving in the same direction, but you don’t get stuck in traffic. Same destination, faster route.
When you use our API connection, you’re still directly connected to the FedEx platform. The only difference is that we’re facilitating the connection and providing an uncluttered pathway, so you don’t experience unnecessary downtime or delays.
CloudLogix has been an integrated partner with FedEx for more than 10 years. Through this partnership, we’ve established a dedicated connection to the system by integrating with FedEx using a different channel than the one accessed by general users. Disruptions can still happen using our API, but on the rare occasion that they do, they’re much shorter in duration.
Added Benefits of Using Our API Connection
At CloudLogix, we’re committed to all aspects of our customers’ success. That’s why we offer a robust suite of features and added benefits in our supply chain management platform that come along with our API connection.
For starters, we help our customers do away with tedious manual tracking. CloudLogix makes it easy to implement automated solutions that can result in less time spent tracking orders.
Our FedEx API is just one of many tools we offer that harnesses the power of automation by automatically tracking all active FedEx freight shipments and providing a real-time view of shipment status. By taking advantage of this feature, you can make informed and timely decisions on managing orders.
For example, if you have a large shipment arriving soon, you can ensure you have a loading dock ready to accept it. If a shipment is delayed, you can work your way down the supply chain, adjusting operations to prevent the slower transit times from resulting in a severe bottleneck.
No matter the situation, CloudLogix’s FedEx API helps everyone stay informed and in control. You can say goodbye to the days of scrambling resources to accommodate a surprise or delayed shipment.
