FedEx Ground Tracking API

FedEx Ground Tracking API helps businesses provide timely and accurate tracking information for customers in various forms of notifications, such as messages, emails, etc. Business ends can also enjoy excellent transparency of their shipments. Nevertheless, FedEx Ground Tracking API has certain shortcomings. Notably, it restricts users to a single tracking platform, leading to frequent switches between platforms when using multiple carriers. Additionally, FedEx Ground Tracking API only supports up to 30 packages at one single tracking, which is exceptionally insufficient for commercial operations. However, the third-party tracking API, TrackingMore, is a perfect alternative. 

Why Should I Use TrackingMore API Instead?

TrackingMore API has the following advantages that outperform FedEx API.
