FedEx is an international shipping system designed to help you ship packages and mail across the country and around the world. FedEx's system allows you to choose the method that you want to ship an item, and you can track the item while it's in transit. Customers of FedEx can log into the FedEx website to track packages, check on current FedEx rates, manage an account, and request customer-service support.
