ShipHazmat is partnering with FedEx and will soon be introducing a carrier module that will allow shippers to electronically communicate with FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, and FedEx Freight to submit shipment data and receive tracking information and carrier-specific labeling. This module is designed to eliminate the need for double-entry into two separate systems.
ShipHazmat is a web-based application designed to facilitate the production of required shipper's declarations (Dangerous Goods Declarations) for transporting dangerous goods internationally by aircraft. Using built-in regulatory logic based on 49 CFR and IATA regulations, ShipHazmat provides only compliant options for you to select from based on your initial input of an UN number or proper shipping name.
Use the FedEx DG Ready
program to give you added confidence that your dangerous goods or hazardous materials shipment is ready to offer to FedEx Express, FedEx Ground, or FedEx Freight. FedEx DG Ready software solutions can help you complete your dangerous goods declaration or hazardous materials shipping paper and electronically transmit the data to FedEx for preliminary validation and acceptance before you ship1
. FedEx DG Ready software solutions may also offer guidance for packing, marking, and labeling shipments or other convenient features2
You can save valuable preparation time and avoid duplicate data entry by using a FedEx DG Ready solution with new shipping transaction options available in FedEx Web Services and FedEx Ship Manager® Server integrated solutions3
. FedEx DG Ready shipping transaction options ensure FedEx shipping labels match the requirements of the specific dangerous goods and hazardous materials you transmit to FedEx using a FedEx DG Ready solution.
1 The FedEx DG Ready Program is an electronic pre-inspection shipping aid that greatly reduces the chances that your FedEx Express dangerous goods or FedEx Ground hazardous materials shipment will be rejected due to an improperly prepared DG shipping declaration or hazardous materials shipping paper. It cannot guarantee the absence of all DG declaration or hazardous materials shipping paper errors or other errors that may ultimately cause a shipment to be rejected upon FedEx final physical inspection. Individuals tendering a shipment containing dangerous goods or hazardous materials are responsible for ensuring it is properly classified, packaged, marked, labeled and identified as dangerous goods or hazardous materials, and includes the correct dangerous goods or hazardous materials documentation.
2 FedEx makes no warranty or claim as to the accuracy or completeness of any dangerous goods or hazardous materials shipping guidance or document provided by any 3rd party dangerous goods or hazardous material software solution participating in the FedEx DG Ready program. Please carefully read all terms and conditions of any FedEx DG Ready software solution before use.
3 FedEx DG Ready shipping transaction options are only available in 2016 or later releases of FedEx Web Services and FedEx Ship Manager Server. Not all FedEx Compatible 3rd party shipping solutions may offer access to FedEx DG Ready shipping options. FedEx DG Ready shipping transactions are currently available for most FedEx Express dangerous goods and FedEx Ground hazardous materials services. FedEx DG Ready shipping transaction options are not available for dangerous goods and hazardous materials services that can only be shipped using an airbill, manual shipping label, or bill of lading such as FedEx International Premium freight services, FedEx Ground Package Returns Program (pre-approved hazardous materials shippers only), and all FedEx Freight (LTL) hazardous materials shipments. Customers shipping dangerous goods or hazardous materials on a manual (non-automated) airbill or bill of lading can still use a FedEx DG Ready Solution as an electronic pre-inspection shipping aid, but must manually enter the tracking number from their shipping document into the FedEx DG Ready solution.
